PLAYING TIPS CD TRACK 41
A7(b9) [Bars 31-45 ] At the top of the page we have an run leading to a V-I cadence to the new section in D. This begins with a full strum on the D Major chord and the melody – played mainly with a repeated third (annular) fin3ger with off beat semi-quavers underneath. Try the indicated picking hand fingering and make the melody stand out volume-wise from the accompaniment. Once this section is under your fingers, keep the tempo up for a good sense of flow and forward momentum. At bar 42 the melody appears in the bass so aim for a nice warm tone with the thumb.
