Same descending chord shape motif as on the previous page. In measure 8 we use triplets to climb back up those same implied chords. Use your index and ring fingers to play strings three and one. You may want to practice this triplet idea for a while as it may be a little tough. Notice that the triplets alternates between starting on the third string with the bass note, then the first string, then the third again.

Use your ring and pinky fingers to fret the triplets on the third and first string because you will need to stretch your index finger a little for the next part.
