                Tuning: EADGBE

Another fine example of Berts talent for writing really catchy instrumentals; 
this one is short and sweet but full of life. It's pretty straightforward to 
play but be careful which fingers you use, he moves around the fretboard 
quite a bit. There are countless fingering possibilities here so if there is 
something you find awkward, like a stretch, there are plenty of 
alternatives. Experiment. Watch out for the harmonics which I've bracketed. 
Work with the recording to get the feel, phrasing and tempo down. You're going to enjoy
playing this one! :o) 

Rhythm: 6/8, occasional bar of 3/8
