Fingerpicking challenge du jour...part deux..."Dear Rose" by Steve Reynolds


Recommended Posts

Anyone familiar with the song "Dear Rose" by Steve Reynolds?


He's playing guitar, but he's playing it with what sounds like a banjo technique. It sounds like he's in an open tuning...not quite sure what it is. If anyone knows, please let me know...

I've been kinda clumsily aproximating a little of it tuned D-C-D-G-C-D (low-to-high), droning on the open 5th and 2nd "C"-strings and doing hammer-ons and pull-offs and using some open string notes, and the 1st/"D"-string a few times when there're a few notes above that open 2nd/"C"...


Think Open-G a la Keef but with the 5th and 2nd strings tuned to C, and play like Jimmy Page would in DADGAD...

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?
