http://MasterGuitarAcademy.com this is really cool concept and technique. This lesson provides some ideas and examples of how I utilize this technique. You can do so much with this idea - just run with it! It's not only country players who are allowed to play licks with open strings... in fact, it works very well for blues playing. I am hoping that is evident in this video. It sounds very different than the strumming/picking approach used by most guitar players. I recommend spending time with open string licks and open string chords - sit down and study your scales and chords, and figure out how you can incorporate some open strings, with some snap and some pop. It will totally change your sound and make people go WOW! For this tone, I used a Road Worn Strat with Porter Vintage Custom pickups from http://www.porterpickups.com, and I used a Boss Blues Driver into a Mack Gem from http://www.mackamps.com
