Lesson notes

This short lesson is based on Doug Young’s arrangement from his book “A DADGAD Christmas”, where many traditional songs are simplified down to just the chords and melody, leaving expanding and embellishing up to the student.

We start with a few thoughts on DADGAD and sounds involved, but I suggest the student should sight read through the piece looking for fingering ideas before watching the Breakdown segment. It is also highly recommended to pick up Doug’s book at Doug Young's Guitar Website or Amazon, and download the free audio files from Doug’s site as well.
