|Paul Hartley is the owner of
Worthington Music and their head guitar instructor. He primarily
arranged this version of Flight of the Bumble Bee to be a finger
exercise. WHICH IT IS!! Most of us "hacker"
players don't do enough finger exercises, yet marvel in how inept our
left hand fingers are, sometimes - especially, (in my case), the
"useless" 3rd finger. Give this exercise some serious
attention and I guarantee (after some initial "pain") that you
will notice a tremendous increase in the capability of your left hand
Notes for Paul's Tabs: (Paul,
these aren't criticisms - they are just explanations.)
- He only shows 5 strings (he says 6 would get in the
way of his notes) - treat them as the bottom 5 strings - fret positions
on top string are played on the high E string that isn't shown.
- For some reason he puts his intros and the
"end" of his tabs - and separated a little bit for clarity.
- When he writes FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, etc. POSITIONS,
he is indicating the fret at which the 1st finger is placed.
(He doesn't necessarily start a POSITION with the 1st finger, though.)
