Strawberry Roan

My Gandpa's favourite song.  A fairly straight ahead instrumental pass.  The lyrics in this song are terrific but the melody also has a charm.

Study #3

This study covers the technique of playing steady eighth notes with the thumb and index on a low drone and adding double stops here and there without breaking the flow.  The trick is to keep the T I alternation going and add the M on the higher string when needed (right hand fingering is written for the first 2 measures).
