Notice in the score we have two distinct, separate parts: a bass line & a repeated diad (two note "chord") on the E & B strings. Start by simply playing the bass line. Once you get a handle on it then slowly add the higher string "up-beat hits" in between the notes of the bass line. In this way we are "orchestrating"! We are playing more than one part at a time and creating a rich and full sound.
You can play with a pick or your fingers of your picking hand. If you choose a pick, play the bass note as a down stroke, then cross over the strings, then play the higher string notes as an upstroke, then cross over the strings in order to get back in position to play the next bass note as a down stroke. Repeat! If you choose to play with your fingers use your thumb for the bass notes & pluck the higher string notes with your index & middle fingers.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
