    Default Freddie Green on Tenor Guitar(CGDa)

    This is an introduction by a very accomplished six string player who is exploring some of the unique potential of a CGDa tuned tenor. Not the best quality of a video but ... he put me in the cheap seats.This should be listed as Freddie Green Style CDGa - Sorry, didn't mean to be too misleading.



    Up to about five minutes he is explaining some of the things he discovered in the last week about double stop exercises on a tenor. At five minutes he gets going in a rhythm style I've been trying to explore / understand.

    There are a few other tenor cuts by him, notably his 12 bar blues done in double stops and a lot of cuts of him on six string. For you rhythm guys, this is interesting.

    Tony is kind of a ringer! He's a great guitarist here in Birmingham, AL, and a very accomplished tenor banjo player.

    Ringer or not, Tony is exploring some Tenor guitar attributes no one else has been talking about (to my knowledge). His ultra casual way of explaining what he is finding is kind of refreshing. He also is a great banjo player who never seems to step on any of his band mates. And that is different ...
