Guitar Tablature: “Southern Hospitality”
“Southern Hospitality” incorporates the easy-sounding twang of the country- and Southern-rock movements of the ’70s. To play “Southern Hospitality” in guitar, you need to know how to play the pentatonic major scale; how to play sus, add, and slash chords; and how to grow an overly long beard.
By taking the pentatonic minor scale and moving it down three frets, you have the pentatonic major scale, which you use to create a true country-rock and Southern-rock sound in the styles of the Eagles, Poco, and Pure Prairie League. After playing the lead part, try the rhythm guitar part, which features sus, add, and slash chords.
