    Oh, how I hate this sequence. Still, I can always decide not to include it.

  2. Rancheras (#5514) - Page 2 by Fernando Pontaza (209)
    You can go even faster by just playing the chord in the previous lesson as a note for a happier cantina feel. cho|0|0|2|2|2|0|A|cho cho|0|2|2|1|0|0|E|cho

    A simple Irish Jig in dropped-D tuning, played in a slow style inspired by fiddle player Martin Hayes. <br/><br/> I have arranged this for solo guitar in Dropped-D tuning, that is, standard tuning with the lower E (6th) string low...(more)

  4. Swift, Major And Glad (#2554) - Page 3 by Rick Payman (10059)
    Here is the middle section, which starts on an F# min7 chord. <br/><br/> If you have got this far, you will have to bear with me a little further; as the timing here goes a little awry ... <br/><br/> The Bars as shown do not reflect th...(more)

  5. The Storm (extract) (#3092) - Page 5 by Rick Payman (10059)
    Ok, here is another section which I find very satisfying to play. <br/><br/> I play the Bars of the preceding Page through twice, but replace the final Bar of the repeat with this chord,<BR> which leads into this section :- cho|7...(more)

  6. Pull-Offs With Second Part Harmony (#1218) - Page 5 by Rick Payman (10059)
    Here is the final sequence, with two tiny twists to the timing. <br/><br/> The main difference here is the the harmony note is played a 1/2 note before the main beat - try it and see! <br/><br/> It is possible to play these sequences a...(more)

  7. On The Beach Pt 1 (#1361) - Page 1 by John Bergsma (157)
    This is the first pattern, very simple, just alternate on the appropriate strings: 1,3,2,4. (Thumb, index finger, thumb, middle finger) Once you have the pattern, aim for fluidity and evenness of notes. cho|x|x|7|7|0|0|cho ...(more)

  9. Easy Travis Style Progression (#9117) - Page 1 by Dave Sharp (87)
    This is a nice little exercise to get the hang of the P.I.M.A. style of picking. The thumb should be working the alternating bass line and the pointer, middle, and ring fingers should stay glued to the first 3 strings. cho|3|...(more)

  10. Dancing With Doubt (#1789) - Page 1 by Rick Payman (10059)
    This is an old sequence based on one of my favourite chord shapes :- cho|4|x|4|3|0|2|cho cho|9|x|9|8|0|7|cho cho|12|x|12|11|0|10|cho |cr| Dare I say that I use my thumb to fret the F# Bass in Bars 1-4, although it can also...(more)

    This is my first attempt at writing a lesson so I hope it's not too bad.<br/><br/>I have use a basic alternating thumb bass, with the melody and harmony notes on the treble strings. There are a few hammers and pull offs which can be...(more)

  18. African Echos (#4365) - Page 1 by Rick Payman (10059)
    One of those elegant picking patterns that just appears from nowhere and demands to be played! <br/><br/> This one has a kind of African feel, with use of triplets and a distictive bass pattern.<BR> <br/><br/> Repeat. Use as a basis fo...(more)
