PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Use rest stroke to warm up the melody wher­ever pos­si­ble, and al­ways play free stroke on the ac­com­pa­ni­ment. At bar 35 we reach the new melody in F. The com­bi­na­tion of stretchy chord shapes, bar­res and slurs makes this sec­tion much more dif­fi­cult. If you’re strug­gling, leave out the grace notes at first and be aware that you don’t need to hold down a barre as much as you may think; in bar 35 the barre only needs to be pressed down on beats 3 and 4. You can then lose it on beat 2 of bar 36. Re­lax your fret­ting hand in be­tween bar­res to help it re­gain strength. In bar 37 a barre is only needed on beats 3 and 4.
