1. Demo Here Steve plays through the entire tune in the D-A-A tuning.
2. Chords The chords change fast, but there are only 3 of them and the patterns repeat
3. Chords, Reversed Here the same chords are played for the song, but in the reverse position, using the melody string and using both Jig Strum 1 and Jig Strum 2. 
4. Melody, A Part, Lower Octave In this lesson we learn the A part of the melody in the lower octave, which utilizes flatppicking across the strings, alternate picking patterns with the right hand and wood-shedding a particular phrase. 
5. Melody, B Part, Lower Octave Now we turn our attention to the B part of the tune, which requires some strategizing for the jumping melody, the exploration of the use of the thumb, and thinking ahead for playing the tune up to normal speed. 
6. Lower Octave,
Up to Speed
Now we'll play through the tune at regular speed in the lower octave. We can make use of the jig strum en route! 
7. Melody, A Part, Higher Octave Now we look at playing this tune in the higher octave, which is a more linear way of playing. The finger exercises will show their value here. 
8. Melody, B Part, Higher Octave The B Part in the higher octave requires that we make a choice about whether or not to go to the middle string for a few notes. 
9. Higher Octave,
Whole Song
Now we'll look at the whole song in the higher octave.
