  • Melodic Style

    Difficulty

    This tune is not nearly as challenging as it sounds. Move into position at the seventh fret near the end of measure two. Get the note on the D string at the 9th fret with your pinky, and 10th fret on the B with your ring finger. Use your first finger to fret the 7th fret on the low D string. Stay in this position through the fourth measure until the 4-2 slide.
