    I think there's some mistake or incorrect tabbing...

    This is non-sense. Note that the two lowest notes are identical, so you can leave out the note on the low E string and just play the two perfect fifths on A, d, and g. Where's that tab from?

    It's impossible unless you are a freak of nature and have fingers as long as your arms. May 3, 2015 at 19:07
  • I think more context is needed for a useful answer. What music is this? Where can we look at the full score? Clearly, as others have stated, there is something wrong with this example.

Both the fretted 6th fret on the E String, and the fretted note at the 1st fret are exactly the same, therefore just don't play that note, unless you have an eight inch long little finger.


AS E & A not strummed put capo on 5
