Cd track 50
After a two-bar intro the main melody begins. The indicated picking hand fingering is how I played it on the demonstration recording. Wherever possible I use rest stroke on the melody notes to make them stand out and I use a light free stoke on all the non-melody notes. The use of a half-barre is frequently needed to accommodate both the melody and accompaniment notes – for instance bars 3 and 4 and bars 11 and 12. Pay attention to the bass notes and make sure the two-beat notes get their full value. At bar 35 we move to F major.
