if you want to try plucking which generally sounds way prettier pluck the two middle strings then the top one then the bottom and do this with the chords for the whole song. it sounds beautiful

On the two last edelweiss in the song instead of the chord progression G D G C, I do G Dm C Cm and it sounds really good!

I like the waltz strum for this (DUU DUU).

CLICK ON MY NAME

on the word ‘me’ use d not d7

meg

i feel like a good strumming pattern is D DUD

Tess

I prefer +5

Lisa

Nothing to do with the music but a correction to the notes: it’s Captain Von Trapp (he’s a naval captain not a general).

JJ

No it isn’t. If you look at the album it says Eidelwiess single. This means Julie Andrews recorded this song all by herself without Captain von Trapp.

Alex

Lisa is saying von Trapp in the story isn’t a general, as the notes currently refer to him as.
