This week we will begin working on the melody to the A part of Under the Double Eagle. The melody itself is very simple so the essential thing for you to learn from this lesson is how to incorporate Norman’s accomanimental strums into how you play the melody. Basically, you want to establish a mechanism that is loose and insistent, and that is in motion at all times; kind of the way you play rhythm guitar. In fact, if it makes things easier, you can simply think of this melody as a bass line that you would incorporate into your strumming if you were just playing rhythm guitar.
