Lonesome Moonlight Waltz, Part 1
Bill Monroe’s “Lonesome Moonlight Waltz” has a beautiful, haunting melody, and is a great tune for working on hammer-ons and pull-offs as well as triplets played with slurs. It’s in the key of D minor and F, but uses both the F and C major scales, as well as a few chromatic lines to connect melody notes. It’s also a good tune for working on phrases that start with upstrokes. Scott plays the whole tune through and then takes it apart, phrase by phrase, giving you advice on playing strong and clear hammer-ons and pull-offs. He emphasizes the importance of staying in position as you play the slurs. You’ll learn the A part of “Lonesome Moonlight Waltz” in this video.
