The Beatles’ classic “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” makes a great fingerstyle guitar piece. In this lesson, Stevie shows you how to get an alternating bass going (Travis style) and then find the melody on the treble strings.

Lydia the Tattooed Lady, Part 2: Melody
 
Once you learn the chords, to “Lydia the Tattooed Lady” it’s relatively easy to add the melody, which most of the time is the top note of the chord you’re playing. And instead of alternating bass, the thumb is mostly just playing the bass note on the downbeat. Stevie walks you through the melody of the main section of “Lydia the Tattooed Lady” phrase by phrase in this video.
