    Not so fast my young Padawan TuneFoxer. This arrangement may appear simple. Maybe even easy...Look closer and see the challenge you shall! Sixteenth note triplets, and a bit of melodic chromaticism(say that 5 times fast). Use the looper and tempo slider to really nail these riffs, and any other challenges you may find with the lick switcher.

    Let her go boys! Have fun with this one. Get in touch with your inner hillbilly. Also, check out that augmented roll leading from the 5 to the 1 chord. That's bluegrass gold right there. Better remember that one ;)

    Ok, so technically it's not one "Single String". Geez. You can stop scratching your banjo head. You know what I meant. So picky...
