Bluegrass Safari

	  		
This piece is written in the key of E Maj, but played in the key of C with 
a  
Capo on the 4th fret. It is meant to be played at a fast walking pace, at 
a tempo of at least 230, although Tony has taken to playing it insanely fast 
and capo'd at the 5th fret) in recent years. 

The composition essentially consists of three four-bar parts (A,B and C) 
which are played alternately, revolving around the chords C, G, Am and F 
with variation of picking pattern and note emphasis.  So, like bluegrass, 
playing it just requires the picking patterns to be learned, and then you 
can work on speed and variations. 

The chord changes in section A reflect the walking theme, with the fingers 
walking sequentially up and down the strings between chords.  One variation 
is provided for each section (the 2nd 4 bars in each). The strums in section 
C are played by brushing the index finger nail down the strings, followed by 
picking the high E on the up stroke.
