Endings

When you get to the end of a song, a nice ending helps in bringing the song to a close. Here are a few examples that can be used.

line-gold

Ending #1

This one sounds nice and is very easy to play.

aa3d-midvsl27
aa3d-mid-sl27
aa3d-mid-nrm29
line-gold

Ending #2

This one is even easier than the first one.

aa3d-midvsl28
aa3d-mid-sl28
aa3d-mid-nrm30
line-gold

Ending #3

This one is the same as #2 except it has been raised an octave.

aa3d-midvsl29
aa3d-mid-sl29
aa3d-mid-nrm32
line-gold

Ending #4

This one is along the same lines as #1 above.

aa3d-midvsl30
aa3d-mid-sl30
aa3d-mid-nrm33
line-gold

Ending #5

This one sounds real nice. There’s only one string to hold down with your left hand, but pay careful attention to the right hand fingering on this one. It’s kind of tricky.

aa3d-midvsl31
aa3d-mid-sl31
aa3d-mid-nrm34
line-gold

Ending #6

Here’s the most popular ending lick of all time -- the old “shave and a haircut.”  It sounds fine all by itself, but for variation try playing #1, #4, or #5 above and following it with #6.

aa3d-midvsl32
aa3d-mid-sl32
aa3d-mid-nrm35
line-gold

Ending #7

Our final example takes lick #6 and expands it a bit. Pay attention to the chord formations written above the tablature.

aa3d-midvsl33
aa3d-mid-sl33
aa3d-mid-nrm36
