Hell's Open Strings

Angus also uses open strings in his lead playing and as a compositional method. In this lesson we look at this technique in the style of Angus; using an open string as a pedal and playing a pattern off of the open string.

In the first example we're using the open high E string and using pull-offs. In the second lick we're using the open D and G strings as open string pedal tones; pulling off on the D and E notes on the D string, and the C note on the G string.
