This lesson is a simple DADGAD arrangement of a very well-known, traditional French Christmas Carol titled Il est né, which translates to He Is Born.

Doug takes a break from finger-style guitar to bring us a few lessons in flatpicking. In addition to a terrific arrangement of a Celtic reel, you’ll learn a little more about timing and ornamentation, specifically the staccato triplet.
