This is a beginning lesson but try it even if you have been playing for awhile. If you can’t play it perfectly on all strings then you have some work to do.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star uses ABA song form – There are many songs that have this form. The first part and the last part of the song is the same. We refer to these parts as the A sections. The middle of the song is a contrasting section or B section. The contrasting section adds to the interest of the song by giving us something different to listen to. Going back to the A section at the end gives us something familiar to finish with.
More complicated songs employ this same kind of technique of contrasting sections.
Watch for this form in other songs.
