ACOUSTIC SWAMP

Posted on by

There’s something about a blues lick in E being banged out on an acoustic guitar. Go out on the front porch and play it on a porch swing while yer hound dog is laying there almost asleep and it’s even more cool - this is ageless, evergreen cool! So, after you learn this one, take your acoustic out on the front porch and play it. If you don’t have a dog, go git one!

Be sure to lower your 6th string, “E” one whole step to “D” otherwise known as a drop-D tuning. This Riff goes back to my Louisiana roots and uses a lot of pull-off’s and hammer-on’s. Not to be confused with Swamp Pop, which is a specific style of music, this is what I call swamp acoustic guitar. You’ll more than likely recognize the sound. It’s a lot of fun to play and not too difficult with a little work.
