as Rick says. It is all chords.

To make it sound like Lost Dog. when playing the G chord - hammer on the 2nd fret 4th string then slide from 2nd fret to 4th fret on 3rd string - them move to next chord (either C or D). When playing the C - hammer on then off the 1st fret 2nd string. When playing the D, hammer on then off 4th fret 3rd string.

Thank you guys! I knew the chords and slide, the hammer ons were the problem I had! I'm gonna try this!

Do you know how to play the "solo" part in the song?

It isn't so much a solo as it is a variation. Try playing 5th fret, 7th fret on the 1st string followed by a brush and pluck. Then quickly playing 9th fret 7th fret 5th fret followed by just a pluck after each to get back to G. Then do your hammer on and slide into D.

I'm a bit confused on this, so when playing G (open on Standard tuning right?) I hammer on the 2nd fret 4th string, do I then, after the same strum do the slide, or is that after the second G strum?

Instead of "giving you a fish" (tab) here's how to "learn how to fish" (theory).

This song like many AMAZING GRACE etc. is in the major pentatonic scale, G in this instance. Penta = 5, this scale is always 12356 of whatever key you are in.

G=1G(DO) 2A(RE) 3B(MI) 5D(SO) 6E (LA) notes of the scale.

Play the numbers listed below, staying in the circled area, sliding where indicated. This should help develop your musical ear for future songs by recognizing the intervals of the scale that are involved.



  5      6     1   1        1     2 - 3 - 2 1   1  1   1    6     5

So when I went down to Georgia I was on a fence


  5   6       1  1      1  2     3 - 2 1   2

about whether I was comin’ home


  3     2     1       1     1   1   1        6  5

and I know now better than before


 1    1       1         3     3   2 - 1      1 1     1

I don’t know boy what I   am lookin’ for

Thank you kindly! Trying to work on my ear, so this is much appreciated.
