20th century. Fingerstyle. Acoustic. 103 Measures. 13 Pages. Time Signature 4/4. A great fingerstyle piece that makes heavy use of flamenco-like arpeggios and runs. Starting in measure 7, Dykes uses a-m on the upstroke and i on the downstroke. Using i for both the up- and downstrokes would also work. Throughout the piece, Dykes uses a thumbpick to keep the bass line loud and thick. Have fun. From the “Dykesology” tab book
