How Dya Do in C6


How Dya Do for the first time is played and arranged for C6 lap steel guitar here...


A couple of benefits to playing it in the C6 high tuning:

1) no need to change tuning or have multiple necks

2) F#m7 chord more fully realized / lushness (I made the first appearance of this chord stand out with delay)

Drawbacks:

1) need to play with lots of open strings in the Am7 section (you'll hear my strings slap a bit as the steel rides up over the nut).

This really isn't a drawback if you don't mind plucking lots of open strings in succession.

The mp3 clip below features a portion of the classic song being played on an 8-string tuned to C6 (ACEGACEG). Hope you enjoy the piece.
