While My Guitar Gently Weeps
 
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. Learn the infectious signature melody and bass line that start the verse in Part 1.

The Whirling Dervish, Part 1: Pull-Off Power
 
In this lesson, you’ll learn Marcel Dadi’s tune “Le Derviche Tourneur” (“The Whirling Dervish”), which just happens to be a great pull-off workout. The tune is in the key of C, but Stevie plays it with a capo at the fourth fret to make some of the fingering easier. He starts by showing you the basic chord progression, as well as what bass notes to play, and then walks you through the tune phrase by phrase, giving advice on how to play clean pull-offs, which the “The Whirling Dervish” is full of.
