All right.
Let's do one more four in a row, exercise
here.
And, this is actually Salty Dog
integrating the four
in a row pattern amongst the lovely
melodic style notes.
So, it's gonna go like this,.
[MUSIC]
So, just a straight head Scruggs slide,
alternating thumb pull off.
Here's an E7 using the four in a row,
it's like the E chord just opened up the
first string.
Jumping up index on the seventh fret of
the second,
ring on ninth fret of the third.
And, you're getting into an A chord here,
just the sixth fret of the third string to
begin with.
[MUSIC]
Then,
you add the ring on the seventh fret of
the fourth string, and
do another four in a row.
[MUSIC]
A little scale pattern.
[MUSIC]
Another four in a row on a D sixth.
[MUSIC]
Ring on the fourth fret of the fourth.
Index on the second fret of the third.
[SOUND] And then, you slide your index up
to the fifth fret.
Bring the ring back down again.
[MUSIC]
And, there you have it.
