Hunting The Buffalo - Single String Style

  • Single String Style
  • Key   Em
  • Tempo   105 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD
A very straightforward single string arrangement of this tune. Use the lick switcher to customize this arrangement to your liking. Also, go for a smooth sound. It's very easy to get choppy when playing single string. The majority of the technique is in your right hand. Try not to tense your muscles up. Play slow and smooth, and try to think about how it feels when you are playing slow as you increase your speed. Remember also, just cause you are playing faster, it doesn't mean you should also play louder. This is a common phenomena. It is tension that comes from playing something that should be attempted at a slower, more controlled speed. (You are likely playing too fast for your current skill level) Take it easy. Go for a smooth sound before speed. Something that even Grandma would want to listen to.
