When Jody Stecher first heard this song, he couldn't get it out of his mind.
Guitarist Jody Stecher plays this country standard in F major, a key he finds has a sonic atmosphere all its own.
This excerpt of “Down in the Willow Garden” is arranged to be played with a plectrum. I play the melody on the low strings and the accompaniment on the high strings.
I play “Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down” in the key of F, sort of. There are not a lot of F chords to it, because it’s a circle of fifths progression.
