In this arrangement of Cherokee Shuffle for the guitar, there are 2 versions.
Form played in the preview = AABB – A1 (Basic) A2 (Variation) B1 (Basic) B2 (Variation)
The first is the basic melody, played in the open position. The second variation introduces more bluegrass licks, cross-picking, harmonises the melody in places plus also moves up the neck using a floating technique. Floating is a technique of playing open strings in combination with fretted strings. You want to produce a ringing sound with the open strings and allow the notes to sustain as long as possible.
