    BOB BATES ASSESSMENT MAR 2015

    Assessment of performance - Hey Hey by Eric Clapton

    Really good effort, Bob. Open string pull-offs starting to sound clean and crisp now. Here's a few points to improve on:

    1. The rhythm is a little broken up. Try slowing it all down in order to keep a stronger sense of the beat as you change from one chord to another, and make less of the slide up to the E on the A-string, as this is interrupting your rhythmic phrasing.
    2. Try to now incorporate the slight bend on the B string in the main E riff.
    3. For the B chord, I think you'd be better off barring across the 4th fret instead of using two fingers there. you should still be able to reach the 7th fret E string with your pinky.
    4. Work on palm muting the E and A bass strings.

    I've put a new version of the tab in the dropbox with revised chord box definitions. This should help.

    Thanks for this. Some useful stuff to work on. Unfortunately I find that due to my wrist injury, if I barre across the 4th fret I can't reach the 7th with my pinky without causing pain. Hence my work around. Will show you at the next lesson.

    Thanks for the new tab.
