Back in 2011, I did a little arrangement of Bud’s Bounce for non-pedal steel in E9 tuning (E B G# F# D B G# E). This is a great tuning and it also works well for 6 string (just leave off the low G# and E).
The performance requires a rather cool and mildly difficult string pull of two strings in one–you are pulling string 2 up a whole step and string 3 up a 1/2 step. It sounds more difficult than it is but it’s important to have the right gauge of strings on your guitar in order to get the pitches right every time. This can take some experimentation.
When I recorded the track below, I had recently burned my left hand on my lawn mower and had a huge blister, which made the pulling more difficult. I suffered through and you can hear that because the pitches are not perfect. Nonetheless, I let it stand. I think I have come a long way as a player since, but I don’t think I have played this one since then.
Anyway, check it out. I hope you enjoy it. Listen below and then scroll down to download tab.
