Watch the Melody Statement online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Solo Bass

Here we start with a series of two note chords played while the open A string rings out. We'll then play chords using minor seconds which will require a real stretch of your fingers. The first part of the melody ends with a series of II-V's, and learning these basic fingerings for II-Vs will certainly be beneficial as they are often used in jazz.
