    a question

    in mr moon by stuart zender (jamiroquai) how's he do that part after jk sings:

    "just give me one chance"

    and then here's the part i'm asking about:

    "i'll do anything..."

    is he double thumbing, or what?

    Surprisingly enough, he playing it straight, meaning no tricks or anything like that. Lots of hammer ons though.

    woodchuck, you mean he's playing just that part straight, right?

    or do you mean he plays the whole song straight?

    :eek:

    Just the chorus. Actually, he's not really doing anything complicated during the song at all, with the exceptions of some double plucks.

    Something similar to that I think (could be completely wrong haha), it's only a basic guide really since he varies it quite a bit throughout the song adding extra notes and ghost notes here and there.
