Yes, easy on the guitar, Skipjack K8, but it takes a fair amount of practice to get used to the jumps - of course, once you have learned the RELATIVE jumps in one key, you can do the same relative ones in any key. And you have to make sure you don't run out of fingers... making that little finger work helps sequences like this (use all 4 fingers on the left hand!)

Of course, this piece is one of the ones that works best on the little "Hero" 8 bass - and there are NO minor chords on that instrument! No choice, mate! :-)

But of course, if you play the right notes on the right hand, you get a sound that is not unlike actually playing the minor chord anyway...
