Probably the best way to play one of those bowl back monstrosities.

Bloody clever though...

Joyful and natural! Do you remember Hannes Coetzee, spoon guitarist who we talked about as well a few years ago?

Um...I don't quite know how to break this gently to you bobad, but that's no lady! It's Ronnie, from Botswana, playing Happy New Year!

You can see more of his distinctive playing style at Bokete7's channel on YouTube, for instance here:- Ronnie - "2011 Tricks"

Brilliant playing!

Matthew

Well, I'll be, whatever made me think it was a lady?

But thanks for pointing that out to me.

Pretty neat style anyway.

Yes, good, but limited imo to playing in an open chord

Very clever and interesting but a little of it goes a long way.

It's not that different from playing DADGAD, ,open D, Keith Richard's banjo tuning or any other open tuning.
Steel guitar players manage to play a reasonable range of chords starting with an open tuning, and some of us can even do minors, sevenths, ninths etc.
Botswana Ronnie does stick to the single chord, with extensions on the fifth, seventh and eighth frets, but that is not unusual in non-western music.
Are not some remarks a little condescending here?
Cheers
Dave

On the lady of ladies with unusual guitar styles- can anyone confirm that Elizabeth Cotton played left-handed fingerstyle on a right handed-guitar? How do you do that?
