Lesson notes

My Sweet Lady is one of many beautiful, and very recognizable John Denver songs. It is played in Dropped D Tuning using 3-string triads on the top strings, along with an open D in the bass over the changes in the verse.

It is mostly an arpeggio picking pattern but in the lesson we explore adding an alternate bass pattern, as well as a few ways of embellishing the accompaniment.

There is also a section on movable chord shapes from the E, A and D families, which may require multiple viewings if this is new to you.
