Ben! Thank you for the segway lesson… Such a simple technique but soooo effective. The tab shows how to transition to other chords so smoothly. This is an essential thing to know and use. It does just what you say - - - spices things up a bit.
Adding to my “Segway” comment. There is a bunch you can do with the basic format. Just fool with it a bit. For example, come off the 5 - 3 lick but go to the 3rd string 3rd fret and bend the string for bluesy sound. Love it!
