    Default Help with a song intro

    I worked up "Things have gone to pieces" the James King version and I cannot figure out how the mandolin player ends the intro. Right after the pull off and leading in to where the fiddle comes in. I do not have a slow downer and this is killing me. If anyone has nothing better to do could you take a listen and even crudely post a tab or even just the notes. I actually kinda do my own thing on the intro but like I said it's killing me to not hear what he does there. Thanks!

    And there’s an option to adjust Playback Speed.

    Good luck!

    Well, here's the notes anyway:

    gab | c-- a c-- a | cdca c- c- gac | eg -- dedc bcbg | a- dc e- -- |

    Rhythm is hard to show this way, but you probably don't need help there. (The hyphens are half beats; the groups of four are slurred sixteenths; the dc has a quick pull-off from e.)

    The player put high F above the C's in the first two bars. (Chord there is F.)

    Great tune!

    Nailed it!

    but I doubt the player that recorded this would play it the same way twice.
