Hello dear metalheads!!!
Ιn this new lesson I’m jamming with my 6-string acoustic guitar some fingerpicking chords. You always get a fuller sound when you playing only with your fingers because you can pluck more strings at the same time, more in the vein of classical guitar playing.
Also, the use of the low tuning, two whole steps lower in C standard tuning, along with the high strung or Nashville tuning creates this ethereal sound, that is very unique. You cannot achieve that sound with a normal stringed guitar.
Due to the fact that the four top strings are tuned an octave higher (its actually the thinner strings of a 12-string acoustic guitar), some people refer to that tuning like “the poor man’s 12-string guitar”. Actually if you combine this Nashville tuning with a normal 6 string acoustic you get the sound of a normal 12 string guitar.
Ideally you pan out the Nashville tuned guitar on the left speaker and the normal tuned paned guitar on the right speaker, and then you get that nice stereo image and sound of a 12-string guitar.
The chords I’m playing in the video are: * Asus2, Asus2/B, ( same chord like before with an added B bass note), Em7, Csus2#11, Csus2, C6sus2. Have fun and its always so inspiring to leave the electric GTR some times and jam with your acoustic, you will play things that you don’t normally play with an electric and that it’s an adventure on its own.
See u at the next lesson of “The Riff Machine”!
Stay metal and healthy!
*Sus means suspended.
A suspended chord (or sus chord) is a musical chord in which the (major or minor) third is omitted and replaced with a perfect fourth or, less commonly, a major second. When using popular-music symbols, they are indicated by the symbols “sus4” and “sus2”
