Lesson 86. Saddle the Pony

A very well known tune, so much so that it is played by musicians outside of the Irish music genre.

the standard key is G, but Tony transposed it to A Major on the banjo, then started playing it on the guitar in Open A major tuning and came up with this arrangement.

The book also includes a version in standard tuning for those who don’t want to get involved with Open A at this point in time.

Open A tuning is E A C# E A E, from lowest to highest pitch.
