cd track 67
[Bars 1- 4] We kick off proceedings with some one- octave arpeggios: up and down each. You will have to employ a barré roll approach almost immediately to play the initial Am. Note that there is often an element of having to think ahead when preparing to descend an arpeggio using a barré roll. For example, when placing the first finger down for the sixth note in bar 1, the note on the first string has to be held quite far down the ‘print’ part of the finger, so that there is enough finger left to subsequently press down the following two notes on the second and third strings. [Bars 5- 8] More one- octave arpeggios here: this time, we’re playing down and up each shape. Here, the ‘thinking ahead’ element is even more pronounced when using a barré roll movement than in the previous four bars, because we’re starting by descending an arpeggio each time (whereas, by always starting with an ascending arpeggio in bars 1- 4, the fingers would have already been in place).
