On measure 62, there is quite the stretch as you hold the left hand ring finger on the 4th fret of the 2nd string and reach for the 5th fret of the 6th string with your left hand pinky. These two fingers are notoriously the most difficult to work in tandem.

Just as we observed in the beginning of the tune, on measure 64 you have to pay close attention to the partial bar on the 6th, 5th and 4th strings played with the left hand middle finger.

On measure 68, the second part of beat 2 and downbeat of 3 beat, use the right hand index finger to strike the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd strings with an upstroke first and a downstroke second. The ritardando (slowing down) on measure 74 should be performed with gusto and sensitivity. Make sure that there is a lot of space between the notes at the very end of the piece and particularly make sure that the very last chord rings until the sound slowly disappears.
