This week I'm going to show you a simplified version of the Norman Blake approach. The idea here was to come up with something easy but musically satisfying that will set the stage for a more exacting lesson where we study how Norman actually played the song.
One thing to note: I was also thinking about autoharp with this arrangement. Let that melancholy simple sound be in your ear as you're playing this.
