Many thanks to Paul Whitehead and Happy Playing! from PlayableGuitar.com
Read the tablature first, it contains all of the fret positions. As you can see it's all played quite high up the neck and rarely goes beneath fret 5.
Notes in brackets are harmonics.
The bends and slides are indicated by ties in the score.
Bar 40: Use right hand to hammer-on the high notes using 3rd, 2nd and 1st fingers in succession, then pull-off all 3 fingers at once to sound the (left hand fingered) Amin9 chord.
Bar 42: Similar to bar 40 but played one fret lower, then pull-off to Emin9.
Bars 61 and 62: barre the first three strings at fret 9 then hammer-on to the D chord at frets 10 and 11.
The coda at bar 96 is random improvisation around E7 resolving to Amaj9 at the end of bar 100.
It's a happy little tune, play it however you like and have fun with it!
If you do head over to iTunes, Amazon or Silvery Records to pick up a copy of Inversions by Paul Whitehead, when you have a listen to PeaceLoveUnity on the mastered recording you will find slight differences between the lesson version and the album mastered one. All the forthcoming video lessons will follow the exact performance captured on the Full Length Lesson Performance Version Video found at the top of this page. There is a fully tabbed and notated hard copy version of PeaceLoveUnity in booklet form in the liner notes when you buy a physical Compact Disc copy of Paul's album. This "generally follows" the albums mastered recording version, nice touch Paul!
