[Bar 1] The opening two bars should be played staccato by returning the finger and thumb quickly back onto the string after plucking. The main tune begins at bar 3; follow the indicated picking-hand fingering. On beat 2 of bar 5 use a two-string barre on the descending arpeggio then keep the second finger (last Bb note of the bar) on the third string and allow it to slide down to the in the next chord. Follow the fingering carefully at bar 9 and notice the use of an open E in the melody to help make a smooth shift from 11th to 1st position. On the last note (A) of bar 15 the first finger can keep in contact with the third string and slide up to the D note in the next bar. It can continue to remain on the string and slide back down to create a two-string barre that shifts on the final quaver.
