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).

In this next lesson on playing up the neck, you’ll learn some scale positions in the keys of C and D, and how to move from position to position using open strings and slides. Scott starts with a position in C at the third fret, with some ideas about how to move there from open position, and then shows you how to move up to positions at the fifth and tenth frets. You’ll also learn up-the-neck positions for the key of D, which are only two frets higher than the C positions, with ideas about moving from position to position.
