You Are My Sunshine - Two Finger Style

  • Two Finger Style
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   75 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD

Listen on:

This is a simple but oh so effective Two Finger style arrangement. We are using the Thumb to play most of the lead notes until we get to the C chord. Since the melody goes to the first string there it's often easier, and sometimes more effective, to play leads with the first finger. We are using some fill in notes that come a lot quicker than just the basic melody.

Check out the licks for some great variations. Use the focus feature to listen repeatedly so you can understand how the timing should sound, then use focus to practice repeatedly. The tempo slider is another great help. If any of this feels to tough, first try slowing down. If it's still too hard then use the difficulty slider to simplify things even more.
