Start by playing this at a slower speed, this is a really cool progression and the pattern is very interesting because it’s combining a little bit of a slides, it’s also combining chords with melody without stopping without removing the chords because sometimes when we play core melodies we stop playing the chord and it sounds empty but this one combines it’s more of like an arpeggio but we’re actually playing it with the people not like chord and lick at the same time so what I would like to do is to start off with this very interesting interval of a fourth which is a specific distance between two notes. So a perfect fourth has five half steps in between the two notes let’s say I’m here five half steps equal fret so what I’m doing is I’m on the 11th fret of the 3rd string and all for the sake of string two frets above and then I bring it down to the same and go down. Index on the 8th fret and the middle finger is on the 9th fret and from the original one we have here 11 and then I go down on my index from the 4th fret and the ring and the middle finger is in the 5th fret by the way this is still in the 3rd and 2nd string and I just slide it two frets up so it comes out to what I’m doing.
You can totally do either the same notes but muted before like it might be a little bit and when you’re finished you play the 6th fret of the 4th string and then you go into this part so when I do for this I’m playing the 6th string and played it twice on the sampling actually a beat that’s going to be in fact let’s play the chords first in order to play what I’m doing is going to be C for the first or we got the B major index finger all across the 7th fret then I got finger on the 9th fret of the 5th string key finger on the 9th for the fourth and middle finger on the 8th fret of the 3rd. The next chord is just basically moving these two frets and removing the middle finger we got you’re C#minor and then we go back to this one the B major role in the movie do is bring that 1, 2, 3, frets and remove this one again the middle that’s our G sharp and on the final chord we have the major 7 this I got the next finger once again on the 7th fret very easy actually bring down the ring finger to the 9th fret of the fourth middle finger to the 8th fret and then what I do is I strum it up to this 2nd fret 2nd string with my pinky do the 9th fret of the 2nd and the 1st string which is already on the 2nd fret pinky down to a 9th fret and then I go to the next chord to this 1st string, the first string with the pinky you play the 1st string 12 further the 2nd string remove the pinky and naturally right there we’ve got the 9th fret of the 2nd string so similar thing but in this core you see I’m doing here, this time I’m going to play the core up to 2nd string and then I play the pinky on the 7th fret 1st string 4th fret and then with the pinky on the 6th fret of the 1st string.
Now the final chord I play it up to the 2nd string bring it down to the original position which is on the 9th fret I’ll be pinkie into the 9th fret of the 3rd did not show you right now we got the 8th fret of that and you all of course this one starts.
