Below is a short clip from the opening measures of “Home On The Range”

home 1

As you may know, in the Chord/Melody format there is not fingerpicking involved. . . Simply press down the appropriate strings and brush the thumb across the strings. . . However, make note that you do not always brush all 4 strings. . . This is quite different from standard strumming to accompany singing. . . . For instance, in the first measure above we have but just one single note . . The 2nd fret on the 3rd string . . . Then we brush 2 strings together with the melody still on the 3rd string 2nd fret . . . then the melody progresses as single notes again up to the 2nd string 3rd fret then the 1st string open.  That’s what the zero indicates. . . an open string. . . .Then in the 3rd measure we do brush all 4 strings for the first time.  This does take some time and patience to get used to this but the work is well worth it.  You will reap the rewards of solo instrumental performance.

Here is another short clip from this arrangement:

In this example notice the second measure. . . to play the Cm chord we do need to barre the 3rd fret with the ring finger playing the 5th fret.
