This week I’ve got a new tune for you - the venerable “Angeline The Baker.” This is a standard in the bluegrass/fiddle tune world and, as such, is a good tune for any flatpicker to know. But it also works out very well as a solo guitar tune, thanks to the growling low drones afforded us by the drop D tuning. For this week’s lesson I’ll be showing you the basics of the melody, the chords, and a few fun embellishments.
Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
Loop 0:00 Run-Through of Angeline The Baker
Loop 2:05 Breakdown of Melody and Chords
Loop 4:05 Practice Loop of Melody
