[Cho­rus 2: Bars 21–36] The sec­ond cho­rus is much the same as the first, although there are some ex­tra licks to nav­i­gate in bars 24–26. [Bridge: Bars 37–52] The bridge sec­tion piv­ots into the key of C, and the all t2ooTif­tale­mil­iar ‘cir­cus big top’ style melody is un­leashed. This line uses a few chro­matic notes and is fun to play. Look out for the fast as­cend­ing arpeg­gios in bars 45-48. Th­ese are played with a fast roll of the pick­ing fin­gers. The fret­ting fin­gers also have to roll across the strings to play the notes in­di­vid­u­ally. Fail­ure to roll the fret­ting hand pres­sure may re­sult in the notes sound­ing to­gether like a chord, as op­posed to a quick suc­ces­sion of in­di­vid­ual notes.
