I Know What It Means to Be Lonesome, Part 1: L-Shape, Arpeggio, and Double Stop Review
 

“I Know What It Means to Be Lonesome” is an old song from the early 20th century that became a bluegrass standard through versions by Flatt and Scruggs, the Osborne Brothers, and others. It has a “circle of fifths” (VI–II–V–I) progression, in which all the chords are major chords. In the key of C major, that means the chords are A–D–G–C.  In this video, Sharon reviews the L-shapes, arpeggios, and double stops in the key of C, and also shows you how to find the A and D major shapes in the key of C.
