Thats why I was thinking if yiu combined a bew open back tp back notes, like Ipen A
Ot F F E D E, whhere you play tge F once and let it tie to the end of the 2nd F.
True, not a whole many opportunities to do that, but, it DOES. Give a little (Tiny as it may be) split second to take a few rests
Here and there thru, which ar first can help you get thru that chugging with just enough endurance, AND over time, you can start to drop the toes, and play the notes double, as they should be playes, tjen after a few goes ar practice with your mates, you should by then, be getting ot wired. make it.
And this is a very mild example. If its bad, you can just start playing all the fretted noted, and no open notes. And nust jive with it, until you get comfortBle adding kpen notes here, then thrre, then over the whole song.
I think this example would work best in a live practice situation.
If you cant keep tempo, but hou can drop tje frettef “G”. “G A”. “G”. “E”. “FF” “E” “D” E”
And might be easier plYing this 2nd part all on the E string “IF YOU ARE GONNA KEEP SKIPPING OPEN NOTES)
Could go go “D” “D E” “G” “E” “G G” “E” “A”
I know, wgen you know how it is supposed to be played, this seems wat confusing.
But playing live. Would you want to fall behind, or go back to basics. Basics is playing the root notes,
Yes, its more then root notes, but its riff notes.
It will keep the song going, and will help you in the long run to add open notes in places-when it seem right and appropriate , and then over time, and by over time, I mean, by your next gig , which is probably next weekend, you should be rovking out to the whole tune, no problem.
And if you cant get it by yhen.
