Single string allows us to capture fiddle tune melodies very accurately. Where melodic style will sometimes run into phrases that would need to be retooled to fit in the picking style, single string gives us the freedom to play like a flat-picker. Still, melodic style can allow you to play complex passages that would normally require a lot of shifting or fret-hand movement. We've combined a bit of both in this arrangement, and there are even more goodies in the lick switcher. Watch out for the lick in measure six. It's beautiful, but a bit of a fret hand challenge. However, like all challenges it is less difficult at slower speeds. If ever you get frustrated: SLOW THINGS DOWN. Make the learning process easy on yourself. And make a beautiful, joyful noise.
