Soldier’s Joy – Beginner and Intermediate Arrangements

This week’s featured lesson is for the Old-Time tune “Soldier’s Joy” in the key of D. We’ll be working out of D position and learning two arrangements/variations for the piece. The first arrangement is very simple and filled with mainly quarter notes. It’s a great arrangement for a ‘beginner flatpicker.’ The second time through we’ll turn those quarter notes into consecutive eighth notes to bring the melody to life. This will still sit at the beginner to intermediate level and will be a great arrangement to build up to. Go ahead and give this arrangement a listen. This lesson has been Soundslice for easy learning. 🙂
