And
I was just noodling around a little bit
yesterday and found this other thing,
which is kinda pretty.
It's it's single string, maybe using a
more chordal approach.
[MUSIC]
You'd use it for
the B part instead of going.
[MUSIC]
you go.
[MUSIC]
And then.
[MUSIC]
So
you're up here with your F position C
chord between the eighth and tenth frets.
[MUSIC]
And
you could use just a regular roll, index,
middle, index, thumb, but
I like using the single string, thumb,
index, thumb, index, crossed under.
[MUSIC]
Then you go down here to a G seventh.
[MUSIC]
This
is acting as a C chord but it's more of a
C sixth.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three, four, five, six.
You have the pinkie on the seventh fret of
the first string, and
you're borrowing the first three strings
of the fifth fret.
[MUSIC]
And
then just from that position a G chord.
[MUSIC]
And then you go back to.
[MUSIC]
And then, little lead in.
Nine to ten on the third string.
Middle to ring.
Then your F position again.
[MUSIC]
