This is the first of a 3-part series showing my opinion of how to play 4 Lead Guitar segments in the Shocking Blue hit song, Venus. Some comments were provided (after he saw this video) by Andre Vangeldorp, who could be considered as an expert at playing this song. Here are Andre’s comments: There are some clarification on the g-string that have to be played. You slide up to 16/3 (16th fret on the g-string) plus 15/1 (15th fret on the high e-string). So far you’re right. But before going to 14/3, you first strike 16/3 again, then slide back to 14/3. From there: 14/1, and another slide from 14/3 to 12/3. From there you play 12/1. So basically you forgot two small things: two slides (16/3 – 14/3, and 14/3 – 12/3).
