Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Dropped D Tuning - Fingerpicking Solo

Refer to the Accompaniment Arrangement in Dropped D tuning for a more complete explanation of this song. Be sure your 6th string is tuned down 1 whole tone (2 frets) from E to D. The melody notes are exactly the same as the melody notes in the basic Melody & Accompaniment arrangement.

When playing this solo you are really playing two parts concurrently: the melody on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd strings and an alternating bass pattern on the 4th, 5th, and 6th strings. Use your thumb for all of the bass notes. For the treble strings (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) you should generally use your middle finger to play notes that are played at the same time as the bass notes are played (thereby creating kind of a “pinch” with the thumb and middle finger) and use the index finger to play the notes that are not played along with a bass note. That may not always work, but in this case it does.
