Let Him Go On Mama > Playing the Melody with Chords

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.

Cheers!

Chris

Happy new year Chris, full of personal and professional satisfactions.

Thank you for your invaluable lessons, for your will to transmit what you know (and you know a lot) instead of showing off your skills as you could do.

I'm looking forward to discovering each one of them.

Be well maestro !

Jack.

PS : this lesson is great.

A guitar made with a box of Ibold cigars from Cincinnati.
The cigars are probably better than the music.

Tough to find a definitive historical link but from what I can find he must be referring to smoking an "Ibold Cigar" made by the Ibold Cigar Company in Cincinatti, Oh. Love the lesson and this method or style of playing the melody.
