Devil's Dream

  • Time to work that pinky. This tune lays out very will without a capo on guitar, so we are going to be brave and play without it - right? Right. Use your pinky on the 5th fret, ring finger on the 4th, and your 1st finger on the second fret. You'll have to shift positions for the first half of the B part. Pay close attention to the kickoff timing. The first note comes right after beat 3 on the "&"(that is the beat in between metronome clicks). In this case, in between beats 3 and 4. Loop that single measure if you need to get the feel for it, and practice counting, " 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &". The numbered beats have clicks, the "&'s" will not. Timing is everything!

  • Not reinventing the wheel here, just adding a few sixteenth notes. Pick it clean and watch your timing!

  • Even more sixteenth notes. YEAH! The challenge here will be making sure your hands stay in sync, especially on those descending lines. The cross-picking is nothing too crazy, but the faster you go, the harder it gets. Make sure you are practicing at a speed that is comfortable and attempting speeds you can handle. It will do you no good to try and play faster than your mind or hands can move. So play for cleanliness, and increase your speed slowly.
