Watch the JAM: Slash Chords Applied online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands On Guitar: Beyond Beginner

The key to playing this next tune is to leave common chord tones down. Pay attention to the left hand fingering. I chose to use a fingerpicking pattern because when you pluck the bass note alone, you’re able to hear the bass line more clearly. The song is in ¾ time, so we’re going back and using a picking pattern from an earlier lesson.
