Lesson notes

The Water is Wide is a Scottish folk song, popularized in the US by Pete Seeger, Peter Paul and Mary, and recorded by many others from James Taylor to Mark Knofler. This arrangement is an instrumental in DADGAD tuning. The lesson breaks down the arrangement, and we’ll also discuss some of the ideas behind this particular arrangement, how you might personalize it, and perhaps use similar approaches in your own arrangements.
