This is an 8 Bar blues tune in C with more advanced use of alternating bass techniques. There’s a cool B section that gets us moving around the neck a bit as we use some of those cool bluesy chord shapes we covered earlier.

The main takeaway in this number is the heavy use of a syncopated melody. You’ll find yourself picking in between the beats quite a bit, which will really help you build independence between your thumb and fingers on your picking hand. Let’s look at a performance of “Right on Track”.

Be sure to spend some time on the Picking Workouts in Section 2 before tackling this tune. You’ll use alternating basslines under a heavy syncopated melody that will give your fingers a workout. Go slow at first and make sure the notes fall in time before increasing the speed on this one.
