Playing the intro of this song up at frets 15 and 17 like the Marty video below is proving to be difficult even on my cut-away acoustic. I've worked on this song before, but in the first position.
My high E string doesn't sound right that high up. Maybe its just a bad string, but it does sound good until I get round the 12 fret. The 13th fret doesn't even register on my Snark tuner. I can't say that I've ever tried it there before, It does works on the 12th 14th etc. Does anyone else have this problem. The string spacing looks correct and the saddle and nut positions appear ok.. I guess the first thing is to replace the string and battery in the tuner. Then If that doesn't work I'll just tell my wife I need a new Guitar.
Edit. I changed the battery now it shows the 13th fret, but it now bounces between F and A#.
I replaced the high E with a new D 'Addario exp 16 E string and it still doesn't sound right. Maybe it's the way I'am fingering the the string, but its hard be believe I am causing it to go that sharp.
Anyway it's a fun song and I would like to learn that intro up the neck.
