Blow the Man Down

An illustration of sailors singing along with shanties

Here's the first song using the A string so far — it's called Blow the Man Down; apparently, it was an English shanty (which were call-and-response songs, led by a "shantyman") sung at sea.

Reading the Notes of the Song

Keep in mind that this song is played in 3/4 time, which is a waltz; here's a segment on Time Signatures in case you feel like reviewing.

Good luck working through this one. Another one is coming up.
