My band has been trying it, they just have me alternating root/5th with the chords though.
We haven't tried it in a while though, the singer never seems to have it together or have practiced it. I wanted to try root/octave next time and see if that had more of the upright sound that we're trying to get out of me and if it was any easier for me to fret. Because after a few times through that my fingers are shaking.
well dang, it wont let me attach the Word file
