Watch the A Few Bowls Turkish 3 online guitar lesson by Tim Sparks from Post-Modern Fingerstyle Blues

You have to be able to hear this song really well before you can play it convincingly, and a key to that is getting familiar with the Freygish mode of the melody. Tune to Drop D (DADGBE, low to high) and then get the mode in your ear and under your fingers, beginning with first position as shown. Then see how nicely the mode sits against the plain old major scale that follows.
