Bill Cheatum without a capo...On the bass strings! It opens up a lot of new options and ideas. Most of it will be played in 1st position. 1st finger sticks around the 1st fret, 2nd finger 2nd fret etc. There may be sometimes when playin0g in 2nd position will be needed. Playin 2nd position at the start of the B section(measure 6). Shift back to first when playing the open B string that happens in the middle of that measure. Any time you need to shift positions, keep an eye out for those open string notes. Moving your hand while playing an open string will give you the split second you need to get your fingers in the right spot.
