Spy in the Pie
This piece uses chords that have the same shape, so it is useful for pupils having difficulty with finger placement when moving from one chord to another. The melody uses 1st and 2nd strings but is not too challenging (the last note is A on string 3). Fret numbers are given above the notes and string numbers below.

Two copies are included with chord diagrams for both right-handed and left-handed players, together with an optional teacher’s bass part.
