Lesson notes

The talented singer-songwriter Sarah Jarosz, now 22 years old, has been celebrated as a roots-music prodigy since her teens, mainly for her proficiency on mandolin, banjo and guitar. ‘Edge Of A Dream’ is a lovely and dreamy song taken from her 2009 debut album, ‘Song Up In Her Head’.

It features a couple of chords and different chord shapes in the key of D, using the I, IV, V. The guitar is in Drop D-Tuning, where the sixth string is tuned down a whole step and capoed at the seventh fret. The song is in 4/4 swing-time and the challenge lies within the several melody notes which need to be picked out as well as many syncopated chord changes.
