The Water Is Wide is a beautiful old folk song. Here we’ll introduce a little suspension – that is adding the 4th note of the scale to the chord. We’ll do this with the pinkie finger hammering-on to the G note on the fifth fret of the 4th string. There- don’t you feel suspended for a moment before you resolve again to the 4th fret! This is another nice one to continue working out on your own.
