Watch the Queenie's Waltz online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 10: Advanced Fingerstyle Etudes

Queenie's Waltz - Breakdown Part III is a video guitar lesson presented by Adrian Legg and is sourced from Fingerstyle Revisionist: Adagio Songbook.


We're now at Bar 37, which puts us at Section E. There's a slight variation on the tune here, however there are no new technical demands on us. There are a couple of points where you might want to pull-off, hit again, or tie, such as Bar 38.

You'll probably remember from the previous course me talking about the "ker-bonk" problem, where you're hitting a note with your left hand and then your thumb on your right hand is hitting slightly afterwards. Do you hit twice with the thumb and finger, or do you leave the finger out and just use the thumb and the left hand to strike the pull-off?

The nice thing about pull-off is that they encourage movement. If you can again imagine someone dancing, the pull-off anticipates the step and gets them to take it. You can play around with this depending on the audience you are playing to, feel them out and see if they respond to it.
