Begin playing this beautiful E minor melody using Melody Technique 1. Rest the right thumb (P) on the low E string and play with rest strokes using the index (I) and middle (M) fingers.

See if you can pick up my vibrato technique, as well, by observing how I shake the finger from side to side while fretting notes at the end of each phrase.

To give the second part of the melody a more percussive intensity, switch to Melody Technique 2, using just the thumb to play a melody. Wedge your (M) and (A) fingers under the high E string to stabilize the right hand.

Keep an eye and ear out for the delicate hammer-ons that add spice to the melody. Also notice where I play staccato.
