Today’s tune is
This is one of those standard flatpicking tunes, and it’s also very popular among fiddle players. Even though it’s in the key of A, it lays extremely well on the guitar, mostly because the G# that is in the key of A is never played.:) There are themes that repeat themselves quite a bit, so you really only have to learn about half a tune in order to learn this one! Hooray!
Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Devil’s Dream – Gtr TAB
I found this very interesting version of Devil’s Dream on YouTube, located in the city of Pune, India! How far around the world tunes can travel, eh? And, they play it almost identically as it is played here in the US. There is always something amazing when a tune goes so many places here in the states as well as overseas. I feel like I could walk in to some of these jams and we would all play well together. Oh Yeah! Maybe someday I’ll be able to do just that!
Welp, as always, grab your guitar and try this one out. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed one single bit. Oh, and there is a practice video for this one if you look up at the top of this page under Fiddle Tunes…..
