Our first guitar lesson! Fisher’s Hornpipe is a classic fiddle tune, and a great tune for guitar players. Hornpipes and fiddle tunes are excellent learning material for bluegrass guitar pickers because of the difficult string crossings. If you can pick this one cleanly, you’re already halfway to being a pro! I also discuss how the melody notes in tunes lie comfortably in chordal shapes. You can use this knowledge to dissect other tunes and solos.
