[Bar 8] Here the arpeg­gio fig­ure is across all six strings. This time rake (rest stroke) with the thumb for the first three notes then switch to free stroke fin­gers on the sec­ond and third strings, and the third fin­ger of the pick­ing hand for the rake. The last note on the fifth string needs to be free stroke so as not to ob­struct the thumb on the start of the next bass note. Again, aim for con­trol and even tone and vol­ume. At bar 9 we get the de­scend­ing di­min­ished arpeg­gios over a pedal E bass. Fol­low the pick­ing hand fin­ger ex­actly.
