Silver Dagger

Silver Dagger tells the story of a young girl whose mother plans to keep safe from untrustworthy men by keeping a dagger ready by her side. The song dates back (maybe) a few hundred years and it was recorded in 1960 by Joan Baez. There’s only a few chords: (in the key of G) G, D, C, and Em. It’s the right hand picking that gives this tune it’s exciting sound. The song is done quite fast but you’ll be able to enjoy performing it in just a few minutes with this easy to understand guitar lesson.
