The "Beautiful Dreamer" lesson is an original arrangement of Stephen Foster's 1864 parlor song. This version is slow, moody, wet, and lullaby-ish. The tone is twangy and soulful with lots of reverb. Using the bridge pickup and playing far back on the bridge will enhance the overall twang. This is an easier lesson with a melodic line the closely follows what was originally vocals. But simple rhythms don't make it easy to play musically. Try singing along to the melody while you play.
