This lesson covers a short song in the style of Hank Williams and his lap feel guitar player, Don Helms.
The great part about this lesson is you don't need to make any modifications to your guitar just a simple alternate tuning. We only change the tuning of the top three stings (GBE) and we only play on these strings. The new tuning is ACE. This patricianly mimics the 6 string lap steels C6 tuning. This "6th" tuning is the key to the old Country and Western sound.
Also, I find it easier to use a standard metal guitar slide as opposed to a heavier dobro/steel guitar slide. With our lighter electric string gauges and low action the heavier slides tend to get caught on the frets, so for this trick lighter is better.
