This is the second song on Meat Puppets II, the one that sounds like music from a chase scene in "Dukes of Hazzard." Essentially, the song consists of rapid-fire fingerpicking of open chords. Part I: just fingerpick a D chord while alternating the open A and open D as bass notes. Part II: the chords occur in three different movements, if you will, all played fingerstyle: a. G----F----C----G b. F----C----G c. D----F----G----F----D and that last D is also the beginning of Part I again. This is a difficult song, but it can be rewarding and worth the effort, especially if you can get a bass player to lay down that hoedown part! It makes you feel like a bluegrass stud! Oh, the solo? Forget it.
