PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

There is some awk­ward­ness for the fret­ting hand when switch­ing from bar 59 to 60. The prob­lem is keep­ing the sus­tain of the C# bass note in bar 60. Try the in­di­cated fret­ting hand fin­ger­ing and note that the third and fourth fingers can also be re­versed if pre­ferred. This oc­curs again at bar 68. Bar 72 is quite tricky to play smoothly – the aim is to make each melody note last for a whole beat while keep­ing the triplets fluid. Slow this down and no­tice how your first fin­ger can re­main on the E note while the rest of the fret­ting hand ‘piv­ots’ from one shape to the next.
