A question about fingering, sorry if this question has already been asked. For example, London's burning (page12), why the B note is sometimes played on the 4th fret of the G string and sometimes on the B string? Are there any rules?
I wondered the same thing. In later lessons it is clear why one does an atypical fingering, usually it is done to make clearance for a finger on a later note.
Another thing I've noticed is that going A-B-C usually has the B on the 4th fret, but going down, C-B-A usually has the B on the open fret. But of course this isn't always true.
My best guess in this lesson is that you use the 4th fret just to teach you that it is possible to use the 4th fret! Many of the lessons introduce concepts that are used later on when it matters.
And welcome to the lessons! Even though the "season" is essentially done, don't worry. There's still a few of us latecomers around!
