Watch the Going Home online guitar lesson by Stephen Bennett from Harp Guitar Basics

More of the same, are you having fun yet?

Note at :55 - once again I very clearly am bringing the melody in ahead of the sub-bass note. The melody is the open 2nd string, a B. I also hit the open 3rd at the same time. But they are both ahead of the low G - which falls right smack on the beat. I know I'm repeating myself, but it's because it's a useful principle for harp guitar. Again - it's musical AND it avoids the discomfort of having to do a really wide pinch of the 2nd string all the way to the lowest bass note on the instrument.
