Head And Heart

Tuning: BADGAD (6 ->1)

1. Pick open 5th string then slide from 5th to 7th fret on 4th string followed by 6th fret on 3rd string, 7th fret on 4th string again.

2. 2nd fret on 5th, strum 5th, 4th, 3rd with the JM slap on off beat, including 1st and 2nd strings on final stroke.

3. Repeat step 1

4. 2nd fret on 5th string, 4th fret on 4th string, also pick open 3rd string alternately as required, including 1st and 2nd strings on final stroke.

(Optionally allow 6th string to resonate on slap. Direct picking causes buzz when tuned so low. Maybe heavier gauge would solve this).

5. Maintain this position for the start of the ‘chorus’ and pick as required. (I don’t think we need to be too precise here).

6. Change to 5th fret on 6th string,5th fret on 5th or dampen 5th and strum all with possible exception of 1st.

7. Back to 2nd fret on 5th, 4th fret on 4th.

8. Back to 5th fret on 6th string. Optionall throw in this bit : open 5th string, hammer 2nd fret on 5th string, open 4th string, hammer 2nd fret on 4th string, open 5th string, hammer 2nd fret on 5th string, return to 5th fret on 6th string.

9. Without spelling it out just now, the fast-sounding solo bit is played in first position on 5th to 1st strings on the 2nd and 4th frets.

Ian Barnett adds: I think you can play this in DADGAD without it making any difference except when required you fret the 6th string at the 2nd fret instead of the 5th.. In chord 2 I think the 4th string should be fretted at the 5th and not left open.
