[MUSIC]
Okay, so now we're gonna put our heart and
soul into his performance, we're gonna
just pull out all the stops.
And when I'm hearing an A-minor chord,
you're likely to hear me slide on up to a
double stop.
And I'm hearing when I'm on the low E,
open string, you're liable to hear me,
slide up to another chord.
Just always taking advantage of the, the
instrument and if
you're, we have nice open low string, like
I'm here to grab a chord up top and
again, I can't emphasize enough listening
to everything going on around you, listen
to the drums, you'll hear, you'll hear
times when my good buddy, Ricky Lawson
is playing drums on this track, is
starting a nice little crescendo.
These are dynamics and
starts off with them and, and jump on,
jump on the wagon with them.
So again, listen to everything that's
going on around you and
this is the full version, leaded version
of the next song, check it out.
