Listen on:

This arrangement employs some double thumbing with the melody. If you aren't used to using the 5th string that much you can use the difficulty slider to simplify the arrangement when you begin to learn it.

The licks here show you how to incorporate some lovely Drop Thumb and great Clawhammer licks that follow the quick chord changes this tune uses. As always, use the Focus feature to listen to and practice the tough licks. The tempo slider will further help you practice at a level appropriate to your current skill level.
