Extreme Ways is the default theme song for the Bourne franchise -- specifically the conclusion of each movie. Just when you think Jason Bourne or (in Legacy's case) Arron Cross has disappeared -- the sampled violins strike and Bourne is on the move.

To memorize Extreme Ways in such a short amount of time, I relied heavily on my technique of frequency over duration. The law of specificity applies: throughout the day, every time I passed my office, I would pick up the guitar and play Extreme Ways a few times and nothing else.

I hope you enjoy playing Extreme Ways.  The left hand positions are pretty easy, and I use my (right-hand) middle finger to "swipe" the 2-note chord shapes, rather than pluck them.  This technique is easier to play, and I believe it offers a better sound as well.
