Intermission: Country Rock (Keith Urban’s “Slow Turning”, by John Hiatt)

13 Mar Intermission: Country Rock (Keith Urban’s “Slow Turning”, by John Hiatt)

Was it a secret or not, the fact that I like country rock? Maybe not. Lynyrd Skynyrd took me there many years ago. So I listen to various things.

With the new band, we’re covering a few John Hiatt’s songs, including this wonderful “Slow Turning”.

I’ve been asked (by the band) to “rock it” a bit more, so I chose Keith Urban’s version of it and “invented” the riff you hear me do in most rhythm parts.

I took the chance to try the combination of 1987 with 4×10, one microphone off axis off center. I like it.

    I’ve always loved John Hiatts version of this song but you take Keith Urbans to a new level! Great playing!

    Brother again I have to say this is an awesome version. The best in fact! Two years ago I requested that you do a tutorial of this song. I’m begging you man please shoot me an email tutorial at chensley@aerochem.net

    I know your really busy but I would be willing to pay $100 via paypal for your tutorial. It’s badass especially the rhythm parts. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Awesome job! I’m begging you to do a tutorial for this version. I know your really busy but I would greatly appreciate teaching me how you put this one together. I love your teaching. You explain everything in just the right speed and detail wish I lived near you.

      Thanks Chris! I can’t promise I’ll do it soon – really a LOT to do right now – but I will. I am sure however, that most of the things I do here will come out also from other tutorials. I always use the same concepts for rhythm and soloing. Please stay with us. Thanks, Fil 😉
