June 2011 One Comment

By Kenny Kosek

The feel is a relaxed swing. In measure 2 the D flat is best played between a D and D flat, subsequent D flats are true D flats. Shift up the neck in measure 9, playing the high Bb with the first finger. To play the optional triple stops in measure 16 brush the bow across the open G string on it’s way to the double stop above.
