standard E major to a standard C major, after hitting the C major, slide the shape up 2 frets making a variation on a D chord, slide the shape back down to C major position and hit the C major again... so technically, you're only hitting a strum on the C major chord, the slide executes the "hit" for the d, and then you strum the C again on the back end before picking up fingers and going back to the E major.

It does this for the whole song with exception of the last round of the chorus it goes from the E major to an A major then back down to the E major.

Anyone know what that crazy twelve string baritone guitar is? Looks like it’s made out of stone or something. It was the most enjoyable part of Can’t Stop.

It's this one:

That's the same brand as the little 12 string he uses on Idea of You, etc.

Wild. Too bad it's wasted on such a turd of a song.

Does anyone know what pickups he uses now for his acoustics?

Fairly sure he still plays Fishman undersaddle pickups with a Matchless amp. The stuff that has probably changed over time is the chain between those two things. I think he has used various DIs and pre amps. Not sure what he is using currently.

Wasnít the matchless amp for his baritone guitar? I donít think there was any reason to run his acoustic through an amp.

Also highly depends how you learn and internalize music. Can you hear / listen to parts and find notes based on trial and error, or are you dependent on seeing it all written out?

After taking violin and sax lessons classically through high school, I realized that I figure things out musically more through listening and repeating through trial and error. Gives you a nice push along with the basic chord shapes written out.

From there, itís really time and obsession and a lot of trial and error

You can get to a good point through what I just described, but at a certain point, more advanced technical prowess comes through knowledge of scales, modes and all that theory stuff.


OrÖ take the Neil young route and play through feel and different emotions and tone manipulation. Itís a rabbit hole. Iím 23 or so years down that rabbit hole.

Everyoneís got their own story on how they learned guitarÖ

OK so I have a bunch of guitars and I was wondering how hard it would be for me to utilize one of them for a raised b tuning? I don’t play that much Dave stuff but recently I have gotten into his solo versions of some of his raised b songs. I was thinking about using my Gibson J 45 Which is short scale and should provide a little less tension because I think raised b provides more tension on the soundboard than regular tuning if I’m not mistaken. Anyone have any input?

Arenít you buying certain string gauges for raised B so as not to have that problem? I havenít done it but that was always my assumption.

Yeah I mean youíd buy individual strings and not use a standard set but still the tension on the guitar would be non-standard. I believe Dave used a standard voiced Taylor for his first foray into raised b so it should be ok. I know since heís got Gibson to make him a special one as well as Rockbridge

using a short scale makes a lot of sense, maybe the combination of higher tension but lighter gauged strings will be a wash for you on the truss rod/action. I think Dave originally played raised b on a Taylor 714 if I'm remembering right.
