  • Using pull-offs can be a great way to help speed up your picking without having to pick more. Your fretting hand shares the work load. It's efficient. If you're doing it right, it's also smooth. If you are having trouble with pull offs, this is a great arrangement of Chinquapin Hunting to practice with. Slow down the tempo and work on a measure at a time until you get each piece down. Then start to work on it in bigger chunks. As long as you play at a speed you can handle. No piece will be too difficult for you to take on.

  • The G chord isn't played in the A section. As soon as the B section starts, it is introduced. This creates a stark contrast between the two sections. Add to that a melody that focuses on the 7th tone of the G chord and you get a very interesting and unique fiddle tune. One thing that we'll use in this arrangement of Chinquapin Hunting to add to this contrast is restraint. In staying away from hammers and pulls in the A section and introducing them in the B, we go from staccato to legato. When combined with the chord changes and melody this helps to add to the contrast. It keeps things interesting, for you, and for the listener.
