Lesson 5. Off to California

This tune is a hornpipe, and it’s in the key of G. Hornpipes are played in a 2/2 time signature, which is subtly different to a 4/4 signature, which Tony discusses in this lesson. Tony also talks about the use of ‘triplets’. The booklet (Book 3) is over 30 pages in length contains introductions to the tunes, sheet music, scales and chord diagrams. The brand of capo Tony refers to is Kyser.
