    anyone know how to play Pretty Little Ditty?
    i've been trying to work out the bassline, but im stuck with the chorus because it seems to be played up really high on the G string while playing an open A at thesame time, but then the open A goes to a C. ?? how do u hold the C while u've got your hand right up the top of the G string? maybe it's played on 2 basses.
    if you havent heard the song i recommend you get the mp3 cos its really cool!

    I'm not sure about the song we're talking about here, but the obvious answer to the question is to play a C at the 15th fret on the A string if you're also playing high on the G string. If you want a lower C, then you could do it on a 5-string by playing it at the 13th fret on the B string.

    AFAIK, the C is played at the 15th fret of the A string. To keep the notes down on both the A and G strings, you just have to stretch a little. :)
