This arrangement makes use of free-time and expression for the first half. When the bridge and solo kick in, we are right back into a steady beat. The bridge is the trickiest part in the tune. There are quick chord changes and chromatic octave walk-downs. Practice the chord switches one by one, literally by just strumming the first chord then changing to and strumming the second chord. Make sure every note rings out. This exercise will form good muscle memory and dexterity.
