Done Gone - Intermediate Flatpick Guitar Tab PartC
Done Gone - Intermediate Tab - Third Lesson for this song which is a variation to PartB.
In this lesson on Flatpicking Guitar you will learn to play the Part A portion of the popular fiddle tune Done Gone.
With this variation to the PartB or the second half of Done Gone, I have introduced some playing methods that will definitely categorize this as at least an intermediate break, if not bordering on an advanced style.
This all depend of how proffescent you are an combination hammer-ons and pull-offs, because that is what this lesson is all about.
Master this technique and it is another one you can put in your "bag of tricks", or you lick library and pull it out for many many other songs.
This break starts out one octave higher than the original version se studied in Done Gone Intermediate Tab Part B.
The first measure is rather straight-forward, but be careful to get a good pull-off note on the 4th and 5th note of the measure. Also in the second measure, be sure to slide from the 5th to 7th frets with authority and let the note right for its full time value of one beat.
The last 2 notes of the second measure sets you up for what is coming - the sequence of hammer-ons and pull-offs that will create an amazing break for you..
First notice the left hand fingering. You play the 7th to 8th frets with the first and second fingers. The 5th to 7th frets with the first and third fingers. The 3rd to 5th frets with the first and third fingers and the 2nd to 3rd frets with the first and second fingers.
The first finger of the left hand is the constant here. It is this finger that I call the "anchor" finger. In other words, you never actually lift this finger from the fretboard. Simply complete the combination of hammer-on and pull-off and then slide the left hand first finger to the new location and repeat.
Work hard on this lick as it is a really good one for you to master and show off your playing skills.
One last thing to note about the hammer-on pull-off sequence. These are triplet eighth notes. In other words you play 3 notes in the same time span that you would play 2 eighth notes. Not so difficult once you get used to the timing.
