This tune/exercise is based around an (open-string) A Major Arpeggio, presented in the first Bar.

As usual, I have filed this under Acoustic/Folk for the simple reason that I write on and play only acoustic guitar.

I use the following right-hand picking for the 1st Bar :-
[ T=Thumb, 1=1st finger, 2=2nd finger 3=3rd finger P=Pull-Off H=Hammer-On ]

T 2 T 1 2 3 H P 2 1 T 2 |
All bass notes at the 12th fret of the 5th (A) string are played as open-harmonics, and need not be fretted (held).

These 16 Bars comprise two (almost) repeated sections of 4 bars each.
These are presented on the following pages for ease of study/print.

NOTE: I have modified the final Bar of the second section, which I find more muscially satisfying.

The indicated Tempo is a reasonable target, although it should be practiced at a much slower tempo to start.
