FIRST CLAWHAMMER GUITAR TUNE: “SHADY GROVE”
Learn to play the traditional music favorite “Shady Grove” using many of the techniques you’ve learned in the last two lessons. Steve starts by showing you how to modify the bum-ditty pattern slightly by just playing a single note instead of the brush stroke, and then he walks you through the melody of “Shady Grove” phrase by phrase, giving you a chance to play along with him as he goes.
