Hideaway Variations

As with many of the variations that are not bass runs, this variation only changes significantly from the previous page in the first four bars. In bars 1-2 we have a stop-time type break, followed by a pleasant descent starting with an E-chord double-stop on the 12th-fret root moving gradually down to a D-chord double stop on the 2nd fret. I love that ride, not exactly the bluesiest riff but it sure flows nice! The remainder of the example is more or less the same as that shown on page 1, with the exception that I've inserted little shuffle-type fills in bars 5 and 7. These are optional and can be inserted pretty much anywhere where the guitar isn't playing (you probably noticed there's a lot of quiet time for the guitar in the example on the previous page).
