Stick Lesson 4, standard tuning

John McLaughlin has always been one of my favourite musicians. Some of his cross picking vamps are excellent to challenge your left hand/right hand coordination.

This example is from his tune "Birds Of Fire", from the album "Birds Of Fire". He uses plenty of open strings. On top you see the original guitar line. The Chapman Stick version uses both bass and treble strings to create a sustaining sound. Stick Lesson3 picture
