    Soldier's Joy is simple and sweet. We're mostly alternating between thumb and lead finger in the A part. This helps to capture the melody accurately. In the B part, some classic bum-ditty is added to really reinforce the rhythm of this tune. Dig in to this one, and have fun y'all

    If you are looking for a nice and gentle introduction to drop thumb, you have found it! This arrangement has just enough drop thumb to get you going-without being overwhelming.

    The advanced version is very reminiscent of the beginner version. The A part varies the thumb on 5th string and lead finger captures the melody note. The only difference? In the advanced version, we are playing up the neck. The B part has the bum-ditty chord rhythm in the same place as the beginner, but there is a lot more melody and some use of the drop thumb to really make this song dance and flow.
