**Purists will no doubt note that Laine does a half-step modulation before beginning the repeat. I don't. Half-step modulations drive me nuts, as an only-semi-skilled player, so I avoid them. If I modulate at all, I will almost always use a full step, so as to utilize open chording style rather than barre chords wherever possible.
