1. Demonstration In this video, Steve plays completely through The You Name It Blues, with chord names and fret numbers overlaid on the screens.
2. You Name It Blues Chords Because we are tuned to an open chord (D-F#-A-d) by placing our slide at any one of the frets, we can play the major chord that is needed for this tune, that follows a typical 12 bar blues pattern.
3. Dominant 7th Chords The dominant 7th Chords give blues an important part of its character. Using a slide from the flatted 7th note to the tonic on the highest or lowest strings gives us a way to play these chords that sounds very bluesy.
4. Melody Option 1 The moment we’ve been waiting for: playing the melody of this tune. Our first option is to play across the strings beginning on the 4th fret, but staying between the 3rd and the 6th frets.
5. Woodshedding the 1st Option Using woodshedding (or repetition) we break down the phrases of the first melody option, and then we put them back together.
6. Melody Option 2 We can also play the melody across the strings beginning at the 1st fret and staying between 0 and 3rd or 4th frets.
7. Melody Option 3 We can also play the melody using only the (2) lowest strings, starting on 6 and staying between frets 3 and 6.
8. Putting It All Together Now the proof is in the pudding! We put all the melodic options together with the chord progression and You can Name It!
