Golden Slippers - Single String Style

  • Single String Style
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   110 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD
Not a super flashy arrangement of Golden Slippers, but it stays true to the melody with a few good licks. Sometimes that's all you need. This arrangement uses hammer ons and pull offs to get legato(smooth) sound. This is very common technique used by flatpickers, mandolinists, and fiddlers. When you blend it with regular single string style, you are able to get a sound that is smooth, but also very rhythmic. Experiment with putting accents(playing more loudly) on melody notes. Keep your overall dynamic(volume) level in the middle so you are not playing too loudly, as this can often kill the tone you get from your banjo.
