Thanks for allowing me the honor to connect. Been playing slide for awhile. Just purchased a Republic resonator and I really like your style. I would love to increase my skills by learning some of your tunes. I work with standard, open g, d, c along with one string or two variations. Could you explain your "G6" tuning and what tuning do you use for "i rolled a nickel"? Thank you so much. John
Hi John, First of all you're very welcome and thanks for joining the list. My G6 or Bastard G Tuning is from bass strings to treble. D G D G B E the tuning on I Rolled A Nickel is what I call 'Too Many G's. Here's that one from bass to treble. D G D G G D. Hope this helps! Happy Holidays! Doug
Hey Doug-- just saw you on the Blues Cruise-- big fan now. Thanks for kicking a little butt.DOUG MACLEOD responded on 11/17/2014 Next question
I am a recent new comer to the blues, and I have just been smitten by them. The blues have latched on hard and I can't get enough. I had stumbled across your music and I just love it, absolutely amazing Sir. My Favorites are Some old Blues Song and The Entitled Few (what tuning are they in?). I am an acoustic player level 2. I just purchased a Gretsch Honey Dipper resonator to learn and play slide Blues, inspired by you. My question is: will there be any more of your instructional DVD's released, I have looked everywhere and can not find a copy.
I am hoping to make Furpeace Ranch but that is still up in the air.
Anyway keep doing what you are doing Sir, it is amazing and I will continue to hope to play like you some day.
Thank You much
