Lesson notes

Mrs. Brown is a catchy ditty made famous in the U.S. by Herman's Hermits in 1965. This arrangement uses the standard fingerpicking technique of alternating bass notes and combining the chords and melody into a solo, instrumental version.

It is done in the original key of C major, with a couple short modulations into keys that require a few barre chords, including the major shape from the 'A' family. A couple different fingering options are explored and the student is encouraged to experiment with their own embellishments and play it differently every time.
