The Fm7 and Gm7 arpeggios that follow the changes are a repeated pattern shifted along the strings. Play the fourth-string slide with your second finger, leaving your first finger free for the note that follows on the third string.
Another ‘mid lick’ position shift occurs on the second beat here. Break away from the safety of the 8th-fret position and move up the neck using your third finger on the second string and your first finger on the first. This is a tricky method for ascending through CAGED positions when soloing. The final slide up to the 15th fret should be played with your first finger; this leaves your third finger free for the 3 bend up to the C in bar 17.
Smoke On The Water-style double stops are a feature of the verse sections and should be played with semi-barres using your first or third fingers.
Note the use of triadic substitution here to outline the chord tones: Eb Ab
triad = maj9; F triad = G11. Lead with your first finger but don’t hold down the chord shape, as the notes should not ring into each other.
