Hello! This week we're going to look at how we can play the melody and chords together to Let Him Go On Mama to create an arrangement that sounds full for solo flatpicking. We've looked at this type of approach before, but I'm going to keep showing you different versions because there is a method to the madness, and it is my hope that eventually you will be able to come up with your own fluid arrangements!
In the guitar arrangement, be sure to highlight/reflect the syncopations in the vocal melody that give this song it's unique shape.
