Imagine PartD Tab - Advanced Fingerstyle:

Imagine is another of my favorite Chet Atkins tunes, that Chet performed toward the end of his career. This Lennon song is absolutely beautiful and the way that Chet has arranged it, it almost sounds as if he and John Lennon collaborated on the song - it is that good.

PartA

Imagine PartA Tab - Chet Atkins:Before you begin this arrangement, use drop D tuning, so you tune your 6th string down 2 frets or to a D note, rather than an E note. Next the INTRO is a bit complex. These are triplet hammer-on, pull-off sequences. Just drag your left hand first finger to each new fret location, anchor it and perform the triplet.

This part is the first half of the sone or the Verse. It is played through twice before going on the the Chorus, which will be the PartB. Also we will go through tai one more time after that.

PartB

Imagine PartB Tab - Chet Atkins: This is the second half of the song or the Chorus. This is the part that really has the nice chord changes in it and you will love this sound. Good thing it is played quite slowly so some of the more difficult fingering is rather easy to master. Have fun with this arrangement and good luck.

The easiest way for you to master this song is to download the Guitar Pro file of this song. It is exactly the same as the PDF files located herein and the PDF file you can generate here was generated from the Guitar Pro file. I have depicted all the ornamentals as close to Chet's arrangement as possible and as close to the way that I play it as possible.

PartD

Imagine PartD Tab - Chet Atkins: This break will be a few variations on the PartA, to show you some cool changes you can make to the arrangement to give it a little more variety. If you have learned the remainder of the breaks for Image, you will want to master these variations as well.

The first change you will note in the grace note slide that is really cool. This can be executed the same in each of the four locations it is shown in the tap. Be sure to start the slide with your left hand 3rd finger to ready your hand position for the notes that follow.

The second change is pretty minor, but it sure does make a signification change in the sound of the melody. It adds a slightly different bass run and a 2-note chord to the song progression. Work on this to be able to pull it off smoothly. A small bar with your 1st finger of the left hand will be required, while catching the bass note with the left hand 4th finger.

Memorize Your Ultimate Guitar Tab:

Make sure to memorize your songs. What are the methods to best do this?

The easiest way to memorize a song is to learn one small section or one measure at a time. After you master each measure and are sure you won't forget it, at least temporarily, you can move to the next segment.

When a new section or measure is committed to memory and mastered, return to the novice and play the entire piece, including the new section. Don't continue until it is mastered.
