About the Lessons

1. Introduction & Demo While Steve first learned to play Moderato in C by Fernando Sor on his guitar, he discovered that it also works well on the dulcimer. This is a good tune to begin learing to play fingerstyle. The key to playing fingerstyle well is to keep the right hand very relaxed.
2. Techniques Be sure to slide, rather than lifting up the finger, to move from note to note.
3. Variation 1 In Steve's 1st variation, we move from the middle string to the bass string.
4. Variation 2 For the 2nd variation, we flip the exercise over and move from the melody string to the middle string.
5. Variation 3 For this variation, we use the same two strings - melody and middle, but start with the middle string.
6. Multi-Part Exercise Moderato in C can (should) be adopted as your warm-up exercise, going through all four variations - one by one.
