Lesson notes

This solo fingerpicking arrangement can be found on Neil Hogan's album A Beatles Collection, originally released in 1989. It is in a ragtime style and uses a steady alternating bass technique in the key of C Major.

There are quite a few challenging left hand moves, mainly requiring independent moving of the fingers to combine the melody with a 3-string bass pattern on the C chord. This can be made easier by using a simpler 2-string pattern but working on the complicated combination is a great exercise for players wanting to advance their skills.
