I've arranged the piece in the key of C major. Also of importance to this arrangement is I've made full use of the guitar fretboard. This means there are a lot of different notes and positions to keep track of and master!

In this lesson I go through the piece one measure at a time explaining the notes, chords & positions required to play it. Take your time at this point to get everything right.

The goal here is to play the piece one measure at a time until you get each measure right. Then move on to the next measure. Then, work on connecting two measures you have accomplished and "under your fingers". Next, work on putting together a group of four measures, next work on putting eight together, and so forth.

When you have all the separate pieces mastered put them together slowly & confidently. When you are learning and practicing a piece it is better to play a wrong note confidently, solidly in time than to play the right note weakly and without conviction!

With enough practice, patience and determination, you will have a beautiful piece of music learned that you can enjoy playing for the rest of your life!
