Hints on Greensleeves: This is a simple and straightforward piece. The eighth notes in the piece can be a bit tricky to play in time, so learn the piece in a slower tempo and speed it up later. The majority of the piece contains chords which can be tough to play in time. Practice these sections slowly many times until you develop the muscle memory necessary to perform the piece in the correct time. Make sure the melody line on top comes out clearly.
