Lesson #084, Eighth of January III
Lets Play! In this tune you will be fretting the fifth string for the first time. You can see in the video that we can use the Ring finger or the Thumb to execute some of these lines. You should try it both ways to see what may be more comfortable for yourself. Also when you bring your thumb over to the fifth string you will have to accomodate your left arm, maybe lifting it a little bit to be able to grab that fifth string.
I'd also like to mention that a misspoke in a spot in this video saying I was using a forward roll on 1st ,2nd and fifth strings, when we are actually using a Backward roll. So just be conscious of that as you work your way through the video. Keep it going everyone and enjoy.
