Hey Luke, I think this needs correcting

Hi @Luke,

I got this link from an email from JP Allen recently. It has really good advice for beginners and even intermediates!!

However, at the end you give a tab for playing the classic song Low Rider that needs to be corrected. I could not enter a comment on the linked page because I have not purchased access, so I thought maybe I could let you know here and then you could make the corrections.

I think that the tab should read as follows:

  -3  -3  -3  -3  -3  +4  -4      +3  -3  +4  -3  +3

  -3  -3  -3  -3  -3  +4  -4      +3  -3  +4  -3  +3

  -5  -5  -5  -5  -5      -5  -5  -5  -5  -5      -5  +6

The last line could also be played using the full-step bend of hole two, as you correctly noted is done by Lee Oskar in the video, and would then look like this (for those who can play the two-draw full-step bend):

  -2"  -2"  -2"  -2"  -2"      -2"  -2"  -2"  -2"  -2"      -2"  -2

If I’m incorrect on any of this, then let me know.

Keep up the great lessons, Luke!! :+1:

Slim - you’re absolutely right! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! My bad.

Your tabs for the end as Lee Oskar plays it are correct as well, though I left that out because this is a beginner lesson and a -2 whole step bend is NOT a beginner technique! LOL.

But I really appreciate your feedback here, and will get it corrected asap.

Rock on Slim!



No problem, Luke. Mistakes happen when trying to code the tabs that we play. And I agree 100% that the way Lee Oskar plays the last part is definitely beyond a beginner-level of skill !! :smirk:

Just trying to help out and glad to hear that my feedback was of use. :sunglasses:

I thought there had to be an oops there. I have enjoyed the demo and now feel particularly good that my brain was not wrong about figuring out proper notes. Looking forward to more beginner techniques.


Lots more in the works for 2020!
