Lesson notes

We recently had the opportunity to spend some time with Muriel Anderson and were thrilled that she was gracious enough to put together a couple of short lesson for TG. Here we have her arrangement of Nola, a 1915 novelty piano piece composed by Felix Arndt for his fiancee. This beautiful, ragtime-like tune in 12/8 time has been very popular with guitarists over the years. Muriel's version is done in a G6 or Dropped G Tuning (DGDGBE). There are multiple sections to the song and Muriel's lesson goes over the main section, which reoccurs between all the other sections, like a chorus would with multiple verses. If there is enough interest, we would consider having Neil continue with the other sections somewhere down the line.
