This song I played in 12th position, using tongue blocking somewhere, to add texture and fullness, otherwise it would sound pretty thin. On the phrase “Move on…” you can use the melisma on 5 blow and 5 draw as it’s sung in the original. Also feel free to play the chorus in the second octave, for example at the end, I often use that trick, where I play the verse and chorus in the lower octave, and then the same thing higher for the song development. Prickling short and fast lines using 16th notes works really well here, if you have enough technique, try doing it 😉

Tabs and the original song are below the video.
