    The stretch in the A part may be a little hard at first, but is a great tool when playing melodic style in the key of D major.

    Intermediate

    This is a first position arrangement. Using open strings can help us to closely emulate the sound and style of a guitar or mandolin. There are also a few triplet hammer-ons. These really help to liven up your playing by giving it a more fiddle-like sound.

    Adv. Beginner

    There is a lot of power and potential in the forward-backward roll. Here's a few ideas and variations to get your wheels turning. Check out the suspended fourth sound you get by leaving the D string open when playing the A major chord in the B section. This constant rolling is something you would most likely do behind a fiddle payer. It can also be done behind a guitar or mandolin, just make sure you are not playing louder than the lead player!
