Watch the Scarborough Fair online guitar lesson by Muriel Anderson from Essentials: Fingerstyle Guitar

In "Scarborough Fair," we'll play the melody in the bass with the thumb and fill it in with bits of arpeggio. If you're ready for a little more challenge, the second time through we'll take a lick from Paul Simon's version, tossing it in wherever there is room on the Am chord.

"Scarborough Fair" has a cool 6/8 time pattern over a 3/4 time song, using the fingers in a different order than usual. If you'd like to expand the arrangement, you can also play the melody an octave higher and work in the new lick wherever you can fit it in.
