VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Introduction and A Part In this lesson, Steve will focus on rocking back and forth between different fingers, as the melody does a lot of jumping - but predictable jumping.
2. Change the Strum Here Steve demonstrates how you can strum forward for quarter notes, and then change to a back and forth motion for the eighth notes.
3. The Whole A Part In this section, Steve plays through the entire Part A, first up-to-tempo and then slower if you find it difficult to follow along. Feel free to pause the video as needed to track each of his moves.
4. B Part The B part starts at the top of the scale, and ends with a phrase just like the ending of Part A.
5. Chord Melody By pressing two strings at a time, Steve is able to play this tune with a harmony note.
