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 2: Battle of the Buzz
 
A metal bar on metal strings makes a lot of crazy metallic sounds. In this lesson, Mike shows you some techniques that will help you clean up your playing, reduce buzzing, and get a pure tone. You’ll learn, for example, how to play a G major scale cleanly by rolling the bar back off the string when you want to take it off a string, instead of lifting it straight off; staying connected to the strings with your ring and pinky fingers; and sliding quickly to another scale tone played on the same string.
