Lesson notes

Many years ago we put up a Free Campfire Lesson on Puff The Magic Dragon, and I happened to mention that someday I would probably get to a more detailed one. Well, someday has come, thanks to a request on our Forum, and here we have a blow-by-blow description and demonstration of exactly what Peter Yarrow played as the introduction to this classic.

In the earlier lesson I mentioned that Travis picking was one of the ways to approach Puff and in this one we look at the specific notes and strings that Peter used. There is also a segment on a second guitar part, as can almost be heard in just the left channel of the original recording.
