When trying to play figures like this, it’s important not to become rhythmically cut adrift, so make sure that you can tap your foot throughout. If you find it difficult to do this, try building the section up slowly by practising the notes in

This represents a simplified version of ex 6. Here, only one unit (1-2-3) is employed throughout. It is yet another example of how it is possible to play an equivalent figure in adjacent scale positions. like ex 6, this section (and the ones that follow it) could have been played just using the fretting hand; however, it’s shown here played using a combination of picking and fretting-hand tapping so that it links smoothly with the sections that follow it.
