Bali Eyes missed lesson with Peter D. on song~

#1 Post by Pillar Girl » Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:49 pm

Bali Eyes… So I had a conversation years back about this song with Peter (DiStefano) at one of our legendary JA get togethers where he showed up and jammed like a sunbeam. He was actually going to show me the proper way of playing the song, but never got the chance. Since tablature on this song is very scarce if non-existent all together done right.

So I’ve got a challenge for my fellow musicians out here in the mesosphere, I’ve always played this song in 2 various ways without the capo, but I am curious if anyone does or has the correct/album technique/chords for playing this song. It’s great in open G tuning, with standard tuning you can strum the G string while playing the B string in the lead etc.. pretty cool stuff. So ya, rock on.~ :aoa: :rockon:

alright one more post before mushrooms tonight, this record probably underrated still to this very day - fuzz/wah pedal attitude, thoughts? :banana: :balls:

Same here. Man if I get a minute to myself I could check some videos and listen to it. Might not be real quick.

I think is is close to what he's doing. The strumming is hard to convey. The index finger is the key to the melody. Good luck. Hope you don't need a video. :wave:
