Two short pieces from my Brian Bonsor tutor book. They're excerpts from larger works.
Mein Verlangen by Susato, and The Little Wood Bird, a German tune.
The strings on my Fender acoustic were too light, it was affecting tuning, so I decided to get some medium weight strings for it (Martin Monels, 13-56). My partner ordered them for me and as a surprise she got a second set, for my Tanglewood, which has had the same strings since it was bought, back in 2011!
So today I finished stringing them up. Unfortunately I lost one of the Tanglewood's original bridge pins, so I alternated with some black pins I got from Wish.
Trying out a strum pattern from one of Phil Doleman 's 2 Minute Tips YouTube videos. You strum with the thumb, then follow up with the the fingernails, bringing the thumb to rest at the top, muting the strings. It gives a nice boom chicka rhythm.
