Below is the lesson for “A Forest Stroll” by Rock Class 101.
Learn a fingerpicking song that paints a dreamy landscape. The dreamlike quality is achieved by mode mixture. In other words, the chord progression uses chords that are non-diatonic to the key of G major.
From a lesson standpoint, this song is perfect for the seasoned beginner. The most challenging aspects are the hammer-on and pull-off licks in Melody A and the slide licks in Melody B. If you need a recap on how to do slides, check out this lesson from our Beginner’s Course.
