PLAY­ING TIPS

cd track 20

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Technique -

[Bars 9-13] At bar 9 we only have two voices, bass and melody, so this is a lit­tle eas­ier. At bar 13 how­ever some fret­ting-hand gym­nas­tics is needed! Follow the fret­ting-hand fin­ger­ing in­di­cated next to the note heads - a full barre is needed on the sec­ond half beat (B/F#); then the third fin­ger on D# shifts up one fret to the E; next a hop up to B with the fourth fin­ger... and so on. Follow the sug­gested fin­ger­ing care­fully as it’s there to help you.

[Bars 15- end] At bars 15 and 17 you’ll find spe­cific pick­ing and fret­ting hand fin­ger­ing sug­ges­tions. For the re­main­der of the piece the tech­ni­cal re­quire­ments re­main very much the same. This is a sim­ple yet sat­is­fy­ing piece to both play and lis­ten to, and I hope you en­joy mas­ter­ing it!
