Shuckin' the Corn
 
The Flatt and Scruggs instrumental “Shuckin’ the Corn” features a classic dobro solo by Josh Graves. You’ll learn a break to “Shuckin’ the Corn” inspired by Josh’s solo in this lesson. Mike plays the whole solo through slowly and then takes it apart, measure by measure. You’ll learn the first part of “Shuckin’ the Corn,” which includes some typical Josh Graves roll patterns and one variation, in this video.

Slide Technique, Part 1: Getting Started
 
In this lesson, Mike gets you started with the bar (also called the slide or steel), with tips on holding the bar, how much pressure to put on the strings, and muting the strings behind the bar. He shows you, for example, how he uses his ring finger to feel the string and make sure the bar is in the proper position and how to determine the correct angle to tip bar the in order to bar to cleanly play single notes.
