Today’s tune is
This is a tune that I had to work up the courage to tackle! The B part is not bad, but the A part is much more difficult. The key here is to just take it as slowly as you need to get the patterns down and to play it cleanly. Blackberry Blossom is challenging on any instrument! One way that I found to make it easier on the guitar was to go up the neck for the “above the staff” notes. So you’ll see that you will play up at the 7th and 8th frets in measures 1,2, 5, & 6 in the A part, and measure 4 in the B part. Even though it looks scary, it’s really easier than the stretches is you play it at the normal position.

There were a million videos to choose from, so I chose this one because of the banjo!
As always, now is a great time to grab your guitar and try this one out. You will be glad that you did!
