PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - JACQUES OFFENBACH | BARCAROLLE -

The first page in­tro­duc­tion is an ab­bre­vi­ated ver­sion of the orig­i­nal orches­tral score. It in­cludes some of the dom­i­nant 7th arpeg­gios and each of th­ese has slurs and fret­ting-hand fin­ger­ing in­di­cated. For clean ex­e­cu­tion of the arpeg­gios, stay on the tips of the fin­gers and aim for clean pull-offs and ham­mer-ons (see box-out) and don’t try to hold on to any kind of barre. The F#dim7 chord at bars 4-5 how­ever, re­quires a four-string barre at the 4th fret.
