Discuss the Guitar lesson: Angeline the Baker- Melody Solos



I taught an advanced version of this tune many moons ago, but this a more straight-ahead version of the melody. We’ll learn it in two different octaves so you can play a version both before and after you go through puberty.


Why do you specify “drop D” tuning for this song, when your tab for it contains no notes on the low ‘D’ string that I can find anywhere in all three pages?..Whereas, with e.g. “Forked Deer” in drop D, your tab does make use of notes played on the low ‘D’ string (and in particular, a couple of low-octave D notes unreachable with the low string tuned to 'E".


I believe I did that because I played the rhythm track in a drop D tuning. Good catch.
