Director of Guitar Instruction Erik Ringstad returns with another lesson in this installment of Real Guitar Tips!  

Packed with informative and fun ideas, Real Guitar Tips is a taste of what it's like to learn guitar with a top-notch instructor at Real School. 

DRONE STRINGS

In this lesson, Erik explores the concept of playing melodies over drone strings, and chooses a blues-style melody to play over the drone strings of A and D. It's easy to accidentally play other open strings, so it's critical to focus on only playing the specific drone strings that you're working with. 

As with all the videos in this series, the most important thing is to take the ideas and do your own thing with them! Enjoy, and thanks for watching!
