Hi, really like this version and have just about managed to get it working more or less smoothly now.
However, its only really the verse and I was looking into playing the chorus "waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda..." in a similar style, so that I could play / sing the whole song. I can figure out the melody line, but it's a bit up the neck (5th - 7th fret) so how do I go about keeping the alternating base line going on the beat?
I've had a go at thinking about which bass note to play given which chord it is likely to be, e.g. an F, then trying to find the F notes on the neck that are close to my melody note, and can just about see this working in theory, but to play these bass notes and the melody notes simultaneously requires fretting hand contortions that don't seem right. Is there a suitable bar chord shape that would make this all easy (can do E and just about A shaped) or do I have to create a bespoke grip for this purpose?
Anyone got it figured out?
Ta in advance,
