Difficulty: Easy – Intermediate


Watch the timing. It goes from 6/8 to 4/4 and then back to 6/8.

Video # 2





Everything here is standard, so just pick away! Almost every
measure in every bar only plays six total notes, except when hammering.
Of course, the hammers only count as one note because they are
transitioning to the desired note. The only time there is a change
is when you have to strum a few times, but the strums are very
minimal, so just remember to keep your timing by counting the
notes in between. Check it out and let me know if you have questions
about the notes.

There should be no need for video for this part. If you find
yourself struggling even after the fingerings shown at the bottom,
just let me know and I will put up a seperate page of video. The
only tricky part is actually played more difficulty in the intro.
The part that I am referring to is the hammers on the fourth bar
in the second measure. If you can play the hammers for the intro,
you can play the hammer below.
