Description

twitter/instagram @benellerguitars Hey kids! This week on Weekend Wankshop, you're going to have a good sit with Uncle Ben Eller and learn about how to incorporate some open strings into a conventional descending scale run. Guys like Brad Paisley and Brent Mason do this a lot, as well as jazz nuts like Bill Frisell. A lot of times, using a single open string in place of a fretted note will give you the time you need to jump to another area of the fretboard, plus a cool tone, too! See how you can incorporate these ideas into something a little more creative than simply descending down a scale. Post what you come up with on Instagram, #weekendwankshop!!! Ibanez RG520 with Dimarzio Evolution bridge and Gravity Storm neck. Kemper Profiler. Aeropress coffee.
