Take the low e sting and the high e

Tune ’em both down to d

Then take the a string and tune it down to g

Now the d g and b strings, just leave ’em be


Now what you got is is called open g

Guitar is tuned to d g d g b d

Lay your finger cross the 5th fret that chord was a c

Lay it on the 7th fret you got your d


There’s a guitar called a resonator cause it resonates

Some are made of wood some of metal both reverberates

Now take a glass or brass slide that’s the right weight

Take that slide and shake the jelly on the plate
