Sixteen Twenty Five (Extended Version)
Difficulty Rating: Intermediate-Advanced

This is the extended version of the online lesson I did recently. I wrote the short version, put the lesson together, and found myself playing it over and over and coming up with other parts for it, eventually winding up with this arrangement. I played a self duet with an electric slide part and decided to tab the acoustic part out for a master lesson.

Here is the short version ... read the commentary there for a bit of an insight on the theory and execution.

This one really is a lot of fun to play once you get it down. Those open strings that keep popping into play keep a wonderful ringing going on throughout and are very good for disciplining those picking fingers. They tend to rebel at first as it's unusual to move to a lower note on a higher string. The more you do it, of course, the more independence they will acquire, which is always a good thing. :yes:

Please note that the only movie included in the download is the one you see here and that I didn't do the animated fretboard for this. The PDF includes the tab, notation, midi files to practice to (full and half speed), the GuitarPro file (which will give you the GP animated fretboard) and the Mp3.

Below is the self duet at YouTube: it'll give you an idea of the melodic possibilities for the progression.
