This outside picking study in A harmonic minor is carefully composed so that every string cross is accomplished with outside picking – so pay close attention to the pick strokes in the tab. The piece starts on a downstroke and is alternate picked from there. Section A establishes the theme and simply raises it an octave in the second half. Section B incorporates a key change and a rhymic change from triplets to straight 16-ths. It returns to a variation of the A section starting the melody on the 3rd of the chord instead of the root.
