VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration Here Steve plays through the tune for us in the D-A-A tuning.
2. Part A In the A part of Angeline the Baker, we see the benefit of playing notes below "do" on the melody string in this tuning and also find out about a sometimes used alternate chord.
3. Part B Now we look at the B part with and without the pick-up notes.
4. Back-Up Chords In this lesson we'll play the back-up chords for this tune, and learn the "jum jig-a-jum" strum. 
5. Chords with BackBeat Now, we'll try a different accent in the strumming pattern: the backbeat!
