VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Drone Melody Steve introduces and teaches this song, which jumps on chord tones, learning the drone melody first.
2. Adding Some Chords In this episode we play this song using some chords (D, A, G, C, Am) using common chord shapes.
3. Adding More Chords Now we add a couple of more chords.
4. Making Choices When we have more options we need to make choices about which ones to use. Steve talks about some reasons for making the choices he does for smooth playing.
5. Adding One More Slant Chord Using the slant shape (which requires three fingers), makes some of the transitions smoother.
6. Conclusion A final trip up this mountain!
