(Well, at my present slide stage I could literally learn from everybody, ha ha ha)

Definitely worth a look! I like his videos.

There are no lessons on my site, only band stuff
I have a book Matt Smiths Chop Shop for guitar available on Amazon
I'm going to film more lessons for daddario soon
If your ever in Austin, we can do a lesson!


Hope this, in some small way, helps.

This video gave me a little inspiration to work on my bottleneck style again. I had some downtime at work yesterday (US holiday) and worked through some of Matt's stuff in open D. Of course, all I could think about was "and some Sheriff's Deputy is calling you 'boy'"

Jake, you and I must be infected with the same bug. I have a beautiful Ibanez Artcore semi hollow, 2xh/b and violin sunburst finish. I'd kept her strung with 10-46 cos that's about the weight I used when playing lead in a blues band, but I hardly played it from month to month. But after reading some online stuff, I restrung her with flatwound 12s, adjusted the truss rod and the guitar took on a new life. The heavy strings gave beef right through from E to e with the lower strings really punchy. I can be roll off some treble from the neck p/u up so that it takes on a sort of "woman tone" with everlasting sustain. So now it is an instrument which can be satisfactorily played without t being accompanied by other instruments as when it was strung with 10s for use as a lead instrument. And strangely, I didn't find the heavier strings too difficult to get used to. I think fretting notes on my triolian help build the hand muscles to cope with the extra tension. Anyway, point of the post is that I've abandoned the reso somewhat in favour of the mean electric machine, same as you. But I'll be back :D Peace

Good post! I'm always interested in new stuff about the open D tuning. I tried to go to his web site and my computer says it's a dangerous place--but I'd sure like to look at some more of his instructional stuff. . .



I got the same "danger" alert. I'd really like to hear and see more of what this man has to offer. His youtube videos were sponsered by D'Addario. Maybe contacting the might produce some results.
