How To Play It
Use your 3rd finger to play the tenth fret on the “high E” string. Then, use your 1st finger to go to the eighth fret on the same string. Play that note twice, and then add a little vibrato. After you have done that, use your 1st finger to go to the seventh fret on the “B” string. Bend the note and return the bend back down. Then use your 1st finger again to go to the fifth fret on the same string. Play that twice, and then perform a vibrato.
Next, you will need to go to the “D” string on the third fret with your 1st finger again, and play that note, sliding to the sixth fret at the same time. The third measure bleeds from the second measure. Start this measure by placing your 3rd finger on the sixth fret on the “high E” string. Pull-off to the fourth fret with your 1st finger, and play that note twice. To finish off this measure, go to the “B” string and play the fourth fret with your 1st finger. The fourth measure is pretty easy. All you need to do is slide with your 1st finger on the “G” string from the seventh fret to the fifth fret. Play that twice, and then go to the “D” string and play the third fret with your 1st finger again.
Begin the next measure of this part with your 3rd finger on the third fret of the “high E” string. Then, use your 1st finger to play the first fret on the same string. Play that about two times. Next, use your 2nd finger to play the fifth fret on the “D” string, bending it one full step, bleeding into the next measure.
For the next measure, use your 1st finger to play the third fret on the “D” string. Then move to the fifth fret with the same finger on the same string. Next, move to the sixth fret with the same finger on the same string.
Slide from the 5th to the sixth fret on the “B” string with your 1st finger. To end the measure, simply slide back to the fifth fret on the same string and you are done!
