Here`s a few 4th pedal licks that I like to share to those of you who`s been asking for the function of this pedal. The pedal lowers 5th, 6th & 10th strings a whole tone. However it`s very seldom that I`ve hear Paul use the 10th string whole tone lower.

The 4th pedal work great with the 4th string knee lever lowering.

Here`one that Paul used on Alan Jackson`s ”Living on love” 3rd bar of his solo

4.______7_______5e______5e________5(e)____
5.______7a______5a______5_________5(4th)___
6.______7b______5b______5_________5(4th)___


For those of you not having this pedal - the last chord is found at fret 3 with the f – lever.

Here`s another close to what Paul used on a Marty Stuart ”That`s what love`s about”:

strings
4.____10_____10____10_______10___10___10
5.____10a____10____10(4th)__10___10a__10
6.____10b____10____10(4th)__10___10b__10


I`ve got a Zumsteel where all these licks work great, however I also got an old Emmons push-pull. On the Emmons I don`t have the 4th pedal but I do have a whole tone raise of the 4th string only on a knee lever. I don`t think a whole tone raise and a whole tone lower on the same strings on a p/p works good so this may be a way of getting by. The 4th pedal notes are located 2 frets down and the whole tone raise lever engaged. It require some nice bar movement but after just a little practice you`ll get it.

Here`s how the last lick`s would look like:

4.____10_____10____8##_____10___10___10
5.____10a____10____8_______10___10a__10
6.____10b____10____8_______10___10b__10


I hope the tablature work out – if not I`ll give it another try.

If some of you can give me a tip on how to write tablature easy I`ll be very happy.

Thanks and good luck,
Dag Wolf, Norway.

Looks like I finally got the editing right

Rick, the 4th pedal is a foot pedal. For the Emmons p/p owners I guess its better to have a whole tone raise on the 4th string. The easiest way (playwise) would may be a knee lever. However parts for a p/p are expensive so if one just hook up the 4th pedal to raise the 4th string you don`t need extra parts. In my opinion the 4th pedal raise on the 4th and the 8th string of the C6th are so seldom used that you hardly loose anything of your C6th playing. Just remember that what the PF 4th pedal do is found two frets below with the 4th string whole tone raise. Hope this helps.

If anything still is unclear let me know and I`ll try to get it clear.

Keep on pickin`

All the best,Dag
