Boiling Cabage. Help! 11 years 5 months ago #3133

Need help with Boil them Cabbage down. At the start of the second measure; is the 3rd string played from 2nd fret to 4th fret as a hammer-on or a slide? I’ve tried both ways and the hammer-on works the least for me technique wise. Also, is the open 2nd string played exactly at the same time as you hammer or slide to the 4th fret 3rd string? I’ve observed my music class mates do this in a couple of different ways. Can anybody help? Thanks.

Do whatever works for you, as long as it sounds good and you stay in-time. When learning a new song, I often skip all the slides and hammers, then add that fancy stuff later after I have the basic song figured out. I used to think there was only one exact "right" way to do each song, which meant following the tabs exactly. I've since noticed that most people make little adjustments to the songs, which adds interest and make them unique. If you look up some of these bluegrass tunes on youtube, you'll find that no 2 musicians play the the songs identically.

Good point palkan22. I've noticed that too, and i used to wonder why is he /she playing that tune like that? I don't wonder anymore, i just accept it.

Sorry I didn't see your question sooner! I think it's a slide - just because that's the way I've seen it played ---

please take 'good notes' next week (5/12) - I have to skip the session - I think we 'newbies' sounded pretty good tonight!
