Fingerstyle master and Elixir® Strings artist Alex de Grassi creates an arrangement of the timeless folk song “Shenandoah” in this quick acoustic lesson. Watch as he finds the melody within the chord progression, highlights the melody as a series of single-note phrases and finally combines it all to create a robust solo performance.

Alex strings his signature Lowden guitar with Elixir Phosphor Bronze Strings with NANOWEB® Coating (12-53).

“I get more volume, a balanced sound and my strings last longer when I use Elixir Phosphor Bronze Strings.” – Alex de Grassi
