Drunkmare – Ticonderoga

The first section of this song is in a time signature called 15/8 and isn’t quite as 
intimidating as it sounds. It’s easier to think of it as a bar of 8/8 followed by a bar 
of 7/8. To illustrate where the beats fall I have added a beat count above every bar to 
help keep you on track. Hopefully you’ll find it helpful, particularly if you’re new to 
this fun little time signature. I’ve also added the lyrics above where they fall, again 
just to help keep your bearings as you find your way through. 

Here we go:

And that’s the song. 


Now:

FINGERING

Some parts like the ‘traced my steps’ section may seem to have some tricky implied 
shapes when slides are considered but the key to these parts is simply flexible fingering. 
Experienced players shouldn’t have too hard a time figuring it out (like I did…) but 
if you need any assistance or clarification refer here:


E--3-----------3-----------3---------3-------------
B-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0----0------0--------
G--------------------------------------------------
D--2-----2----/4-----4-----2-----2----(2)----2-----
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

For this section, in order to be able to do the slide you
Need to play everything on the D string with your middle 
finger. This will stay on the string and slide up and down, 
the 3rd fret on the E string should first be fretted
by your little finger (when playing 2nd fret on the D)
and then after sliding up to the 4th fret on the D, swap 
your little finger for your index finger to fret the 3rd 
on the E string.   



E------3-------5hbr--3-----2---------2-------------
B--------0--------------------0----0------0-----0--
G--------------------------------------------------
D--2/4-----4---4-----------0-----0-----0-----0-----
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

Then moving to this section, you do exactly the same 
fingering, so that when you slide up to the 4th fret on
the D string, and your index finger is fretting the 3rd 
on the E string you can then use your little finger for 
the half bend on the 5th fret of the E string. 



E--10----------8--------8-----------8--------------
B-----0-----0--------------------------------------
G-----------------9-----------9--------------------
D--9-----9-----7-----7-----7-----7-----------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

Then finally for this section here you need to make sure
you change from using your middle finger on the D string 
to using your index finger on the D string. Then you can 
use any combination of your other three fingers to fret 
the shapes on the G and E strings comfortably. 



E--------7--------7--------------------------------
B-----8--------8-----------8--------8--------8-----
G----------------------(0)------(0)------(0)----0--
D--10-------9--------------------------------------
A--------------------7--------7--------7-----------
E--------------------------------------------------

Throughout this whole end section you will always use 
your middle finger for the 8th fret on the B string and 
you’ll always use your index finger for the 7th fret on 
the E string. The initial 10th on the D string will be 
played by your little finger, with the following 9th fret
being played by your ring finger. Then moving to the 
second shape, keeping your middle finger on the 8th fret
on the B string, bring your index finger down to fret the 
7th on the A string. 



E--------7-----------------7--------7--------7-----
B--------8-----------------8--------8--------8-----
G----(0)----------0----(0)------(0)------(0)-------
D--9--------0-h4/5---------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------7--------8--------8--------8--
                     T        T        T        T

Then this final section, your ring finger will fret 
the 9th on the D string, your index finger returning 
to the 7th fret on the E string. This positioning makes
it easiest then to use your ring finger for the 
little hammer on/slide on the D string. Then your thumb
can fret everything on the low E while your middle and 
index fingers can go back to fretting the 8th and 7th on 
the B and E strings respectively. 

Hopefully this is of use,

Good luck and enjoy!
