Bar[6] and [18]
Same bass note but an octave apart. This version is lower playing notes on the a and low 
string. I find this easier to play (more left finger space)

Bar[12]
Ending of part 1. Series of semiquavers double stops(2 notes).

Bar[20]
Only measure with barred chords. A pair of them on fret 3. You don't necessaily need to 
(2 notes) but I find it easier to barre to sound the bass note.

Bar[23]
Hinged Barre chord. Flatten index to rapidly barred the string below (treble e).

Bar[24]
Ending of part 2. Series of semiquavers double stops(2 notes).
