@Peter Wolf...ok I can see you are getting there.  I would suggest working on your rhythm first.  Isolate the alternating bass and play that in time by itself in a comfortable tempo, then add the melody on the slide once you have the bass down solid.  Keep at it!  Thanks for posting.

Hi @Corey

Here's this week's drop.  Workin' towards a whole song, just need more verses and a solo.

Here's a question-- if I want to play this in a Jam with others, what do I tell the band for chords?  From the alternating thumb, it appears to stay on the 1, but it sounds like it moves.

 

Thanks
