[MUSIC]
Well here we've got the song,
Forked Deer, once again.
We played this once in an earlier lesson,
but
now I've got a different way to play it
for you.
And this way is we're playing the whole
melody as it was written,
or pretty close to it anyway.
And so, now that we're developing this
alternate picking technique,
we can start to play more complicated
melodies, even in a closed position.
So
[MUSIC]
this song is in
the key of D
[MUSIC]
and we were playing, in a previous lesson,
a sort of Dobro-ified version of this,
which sounded like.
[MUSIC].
But that's not the actual melody.
That's just a sorta
less cumbersome way to play
it the actual melody is this
[MUSIC].
So we're gonna work on that.
So this is gonna use this alternate
picking technique here
in a closed position
[MUSIC]
that's the initial lick.
[MUSIC].
So for this one I'm actually
leading with the index finger,
then thumb, index, thumb
[MUSIC]
and then just a reverse roll
on the seventh fret
[MUSIC].
What we were playing originally for the
was this.
[MUSIC]
but
now we're going to complete the whole
melody.
[MUSIC].
So this right here
[MUSIC]
is a great,
sort of fiddle tune type of ending, so
you're gonna wanna make sure you've got
your alternate picking happening.
[MUSIC].
And that's mainly it.
The B part remains fairly the same.
So, let's go ahead and try this at a
moderate tempo, Forked Deer,
with an alternate picking in closed
position.
[MUSIC].
