Peter Buck slides back and forth between the C/G and the Dadd4add9/A in the intro and verses of "Man on the Moon." But I learned it first playing "Closer to Fine" 5 bazillion times in college for all the groovy California girls.

If you like the sound of the Dadd4add0, you'll love the sound of it arpeggiated. It takes the edge off that 1/2-step interval that's too dissonant for some ears.

Learned that C to D slide in Little Feat's " Willin' ". I think it's the best part of the song.

While it's easy enough I'm not sold on the sound yet, still playing with it.
Anybody else use this chord?
I could not find it with a google search.
Well if you don't mute the first and third string you end up with Dsus2sus4....

Slide the C major chord up two frets and make it a D7. Alternate the bass lines, then slide back down to C Major and you have the basics for Neil's "Sugar Mountain".

Oh yeah, this (sliding) sounds so cool when playing triplets, minors, or whatever. I use it almost daily.

Default Five years old, still helps!

Thanks all, I just found this thread trying to figure out how Brandi Carlile was sliding her C in The Highwomen.

I also slide Fmajor7 that same way in a song that I wrote.

Same here. It's a nice twist in that song.

Im pretty sure Brandi played Closer to Fine once or twice in her youth, so shed be pretty familiar with that chord.

As an aside, just saw her in Niagara doing one of her solo shows. She was amazing. Dont miss out if you get the chance.
