  • The "Drop D Country Pull-Offs" lesson covers an uptempo song that is intended to develop hot modern country open string pull-offs. In this case we also utilize Drop D tuning to add a little more edge and depth to the sound. Some keys to this lesson are starting very slow, recognizing the patterns, and developing the muscle memory.

    Techniques used in this lesson include:
    Hybrid picking
    Open string pull-offs
    Banjo rolls
    Natural Harmonics
    Natural harmonics assisted by the right hand
