Lesson notes

I Wonder As I Wander is based in American folk tradition and was first collected by John Jacob Niles in 1933. The melancholy melody makes a great base for a solo guitar arrangement, and lends itself well to improvising as well. This arrangement is similar to the way I played it on my album A Christmas Collection. It is in 3/4 time and includes 2 verses with different feels. It includes some advanced right-hand techniques as well as thoughts on playing it with feeling.
