Home Sweet Home
 
In Part 2 of the lesson on crosspicking, you'll learn the first part of Scott's arrangement of "Home Sweet Home," which mostly uses the traditional 3-3-2 roll. Since crosspicking is usually used to play song melodies, it's a good idea to learn the melody of a song before tackling a crosspicking arrangement, so Scott starts by making sure you know the melody to "Home Sweet Home" and then takes the arrangement apart phrase by phrase (or roll by roll).

Many bluegrass guitarists tend to favor G and C positions, using the capo to play in other keys like A, D, E, etc. But open D position works well for lots of things, as well, including playing fiddle tunes such as “Fisher’s Hornpipe,” which you’ll learn in this lesson. Scott teaches a version in the octave it’s usually played in and another version in a lower octave, and then goes on to talk about playing harmonies to fiddle tunes, with an example of a harmony line that works with this version of “Fisher’s Hornpipe.” To get started, Scott walks you through the A part of “Fisher’s Hornpipe” phrase by phrase, with lots of opportunities to play along as you’re learning the tune.
