Hello

If you didn't work part 1, 2, 3 and 4 you have to check it out.Don't forget to check this vidéo that show you how the piece works:


If you looked this video you noticed that I finish this with a strum. So this last part is no more picking.

I give your here a quite precise transcription of what I'm doing in the last part of the vidéo. So If there is something in the tab you don't understand, just look at the vidéo.

The rythm I Play is more complex that the one I propose here. You can play it as you want but the rythm here is, more or less: DU U U UDU U U...

For the rest of it, it's precisely the same tricks than in the first parts exept that the strumming allows you to change notes in the chords more quickly. Chords are the same than first parts too.

Part one:

Once again you can experienced and improvise, you will see that anything goes as long as you stay in F scale: Wich means 1rst, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th fret of A string.

I hope that this lesson helped a bit. Now you can aply those principles to any chord progression, song, piece that you like...
