You’ve got the 3rd fret, 2nd fret, 4th fret, 3rd fret. And I’m going to start with
fingers 1, 2, 3, or I-M-A if you’re thinking classically, on the 4th string,
3rd string and 2nd string. That’s going to come in on the last 16th note, one-E-and-A, two-E-and — A. So we’re starting on the A — one-E-and-A, two-E-and-A. And then my thumb is going to play the downbeat and then
I’m going to play the and — one-and — with the upper part of the chord.
