Auld Lang Syne is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight. By extension, it is also sung at funerals, graduations and as a farewell or ending to other occasions.
For the Auld Lang Syne guitar lesson, Muriel goes over two basic approaches that can be used for many tunes. First, you’ll look at a simple chord melody in which we’ll play the chords and find each melody note as the top voice of the chords. Then you’ll work on a fingerpicking arrangement that uses a similar approach, playing the alternating bass for each chord with the thumb and finding the melody notes on top, played with the fingers of the right hand.
