Under The Double Eagle > Syncopation

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris:  

Hello all! For this week’s lesson we will be looking in detail at the syncopations that Norman uses on the A part of Under the Double Eagle. The trick to this lesson is that your right hand never stops playing 16th notes in an up/down pattern. This means that the syncopations are felt based on where you place the melody notes within the steady flow of 16th notes.

Under the Double Eagle is a GREAT solo flatpicking number that sounds full and complete even without another accompaniest. The thing that makes that work is maintaining that stream of 16th notes.
