Creating Variations in the A Section

A Welcome Change

Neither of these licks are insanely tough, but they present a nice change to the basic melody. Crosspicking that uses a drone string is usually a really great sound, and the chromatic lick is one that almost always turns heads. Pay close attention tho the left hand fingering for both, and stick to the pick direction as indicated in the tab for the crosspicking lick.
