Jerusalem Ridge > B Part

Hello All!

This week I'll be showing you the B-part to Jerusalem Ridge. This section of the tune has a couple of cool features: a slid double stop to start the section and a new way of shifting up the neck to a higher position. One thing that I love about this portion of the melody is how "rangey" it is. I love that it goes up to the high E at the 12th fret of the high E string. You really have to use the whole fingerboard to play this melody.

Enjoy!

Chris

After struggling for a week and doing some scale exercises and whatnot, I've got this B Part video. It isn't up to speed or flawless but I thought worthy of a check in - check out. I have a tendency to add notes, miss notes and make up my own notes so before I get too far along I'm posting. The goal being to put all of the parts together and play the tune as a whole. Yea ... thats the goal. Sorry about the knees.

Kip, you got it. Those were all the notes that I was playing. I do think that you could relax a bit more on the slides/jumps, where you are going from one part of the neck to another. You're playing the notes right but see how relaxed you can feel as you land the notes. I think that if those slides were a bit more relaxed then the rest (which already seems pretty relased) will get better.
