If
you're playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown
and want a new lick for
an E minor chord in there.
Here's an idea using four in a row.
[MUSIC]
Index on the second fret of
the fourth string.
Pinky on the fourth fret of the first
string.
[MUSIC]
So you could use this for both E minors
just.
[MUSIC]
Ending up on the fifth string
four in a row.
[MUSIC]
Again index on the second fret of
the fourth string, pinky on the fourth
fret of the first string,
with a quarter note there and the pause.
Twice, and then go down one fret with the
index.
You'll definitely have tendonitis if you
take too long with this,
so don't hurt yourself, but I have the
thumb behind the neck here,
it'd be almost impossible to do it like
this, or at least uncomfortable.
