[Bar 1] For each of the first three bars aim to play the repeating notes and chords with a consistent tone and a steady pulse – don’t be tempted to rush. [Bar 4] The melody begins at bar 4 so make it nicely audible over the chords. At bar 5, mute the low open fourth string with your picking-hand thumb immediately after playing the Gm7 chord. At bar 4 we have a two-bar V-I (Dm-Gm7) cadence that is repeated at bars 6 and 8, each time descending in pitch. The third time (bar 8) has written out ornamentation – maintain a steady pulse.
