Today’s tune is
ANGELINE THE BAKER
This old standby tune is in the key of D and, with lots of quarter notes, is very achievable for even the beginner. There are many, many versions of the tune, but mostly one basic melody to start out with. Hooray! The chord structure is mostly D with a G thrown in every now and then.
Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Angeline the Baker
The video of Angeline the Baker that I found was done by The Wayfarers, and they play it with lots of energy and enthusiasm. And, as an aside, they pair it with Sal’s Got Mud Between Her Toes, which I absolutely love! That tune has been covered on this blog, and you can find the notation and TAB for Sal’s here – Sal’s Got Mud Between Her Toes – Gtr TAB.
You can’t miss by learning Angeline the Baker, so grab your guitar and give it a whirl! You’ll be glad that you did!
