Cherokee Shuffle

Familiarity Up the Neck

Hello all!

This week we're going to be learning and playing the melody with almost exactly the same notes and rhythms that we used last week. But they're all going to be located in a very different position on the fingerboard - up the neck out of a C position. Once you can play it in both places, try switching from one position (open G) to another (up the neck C) mid-tune. It might be tricky to switch at first, but if you work at it you'll develop a sense of where the important notes (roots, 5ths, etc) live in each position.
