The sec­ond half of bar 8 needs a barre at fret 11. This can be very dif­fi­cult to do so spend some time find­ing the best arm and hand po­si­tion to achieve it. This is a per­fect ex­am­ple of where adopt­ing the cor­rect clas­si­cal sitBtibng po­si­tion mak2es all the dif­fer­ence. The melody note B at bar49 is played with a har­monic at the 19th fret. This har­monic is played en­tirely with the pick­ing hand; the first fin­ger touches the string di­rectly over the 19th fret and the third fin­ger of the pick­ing hand plucks the string. At the same time the thumb plucks the bass note.
