In this version of the traditional song, "Do You Love an Apple?", you'll hear me use a fingerpicking pattern in 6/8 time. See if you can get to the point of being able to play this song along with me on the video. It's a great way to push and reinforce your skills.

Also, think of this song project as an example of how you might use fingerpicking patterns and ornaments to create an arrangement for any song you choose in 6/8 time. Due to copyright law, I am only able to post examples of fingerpicking songs that are in the Public Domain. These include traditional folk songs and songs with no known author.


INTRO: G / G suspended4 / G / G suspended4 /

Do (G) you love an (C) apple?

Do (G) you love a (C) pear?

Do (G) you love a (C) laddy with (G) curly brown (D) hair?

Why (Em) yes I (G) love him, I'll (C) not (Am7) deny him,

(G) I'll be (C) with him where (D) ever he (G) goes

Before I got married I wore a black shawl
But after I'm married, I wore bugger-all
But still I love him, I'll never deny him
I'll always love him 'till the day that I die
