Vintage Guitar Magazine Presents:
FRETPRINTS

by Wolf Marshall

Subject: Keith Richards


Fig.1.
Open G tuning riffs are a staple of the Keith Richards style. This figure uses the tuning to generate a solid rock rhythm figure made of characteristic big chords. It is a five-string riff played on the upper strings of the guitar. Keith removes the sixth string (low E) from his Tele to facilitate chord work in this tuning. That refinement places the root note of prominent barred chords on the fifth string; explicit in the barred C and Bb chords of the pattern. 

The open tuning has an extra bonus of creating unusual and attractive voicings like the F/C, which has an added second (G note on the first string) in the structure.
