Aaron**2,

Those are some really good submissions by each of you. I suspect that if you can pick up the pace both of you guys could make the exam which is slated to be open on April 12th.

Keep up the good work.

I know it's optimistic but considering the level of your play I suspect you could pass the exam.

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!

1) Open notes have a different tonality.

2) It allows you to apply vibrato if you play the B fretted.


Ultimately it's up to the performer to choose where and how to play. I consider left and right hand fingerings to be suggestions instead of steadfast rules.

There are many different ways to achieve similar results on guitar. Don't let anyone tell you any particular way is right or wrong. Play the way that makes you happy and gives you the results you want.
