Just a word of warning to anyone trying this for the first time -- be careful about left-hand fingerings and positions. The idea is to maintain a cross-string picking pattern throughout, without ever playing two notes on the same string (except the bass, of course). The only way to do that is by closely observing string designations. If you see an F# to be played on the 3rd string (11th fret), that's where you've got to play it to get the picking pattern to work out properly. It's a tricky read in places, although relatively easy to play once figured out.Rick Beauregard wrote: ↑Wed Jul 05, 2017 10:38 pmYes and I actually like it not played too fast, though that's a good exercise for sure. That time change is one of the things that makes it so nice musically imho.Paul Janssen wrote: ↑Wed Jul 05, 2017 9:37 pmIt's funny that you should suggest this one when you did as I just started playing this yesterday before I read this post. Very nice little study that sounds good both at a slower tempo and sped up. There's also the interesting twist with the change in time signature from 3/4 to 2/4 at the end which takes some getting used to.
