VideoAbout the Lessons

D-A-A Tuning  
1. Demonstration First Steve plays through the entire tune for us.
2. Part A We start learning the melody of this tune because its notes jump between the tones that make up the chords; we will also address playing dotted rhythm patterns.
3. Part B The B part of the song is a linear, walk-down-the-steps kind of melody.
4. Timing of
Whole Song
This time we pay particular attention to the timing of this song, since it has some "dotted" note patterns.
5. Chords Now we'll turn our attention to the chords to accompany this tune!
D-A-d Tuning  
6. Demonstration Here Steve plays through the entire tune for us in the D-A-d tuning.
7. Part A First we make use of the fingering exercises to rock back and forth (or slide 1 finger, like a noter) to play the repeating phrases in the A Part.
8. Part B Now we learn the B Part of this tune, which makes use of sequences (repeating musical phrases), a fact which shortens the learning curve!
9. Whole Song Now we put the A and B parts together to play the whole song.
10. Chords Next we find the chords that go with this tune.
11. Chords with Melody Finally we combine playing chords and melody for a "nearly" chord-melody version of this fine tune.
