Eos is an original tune by Steve Eulberg. Eos is the goddess of dawn in Greek mythology, and Steve named this tune Eos because he wrote the tune early in the morning. This tune is played fingerstyle, and the lesson is best suited for intermediate to advanced students.
Here Steve plays through the tune for us.
Look at the free overview of this Fingerstyle Lesson here. Remember that members have ALL the ACCESS to ALL the lessons, ALL the time!
You can also enjoy Steve fingerpicking the tune on guitar on his new CD, Between the Tracks. This 13-track, 44 minute CD is a fine offering of relaxing, modern solo guitar magic that serves up a wide range of jazzy and bluesy acoustic instrumentals.

Moderato in C was written by Fernando Sor for classical guitarists.
However, the exercise lends itself very well to the mountain dulcimer in the D-A-d tuning or you can retune your dulcimer to C-G-c to keep the piece in its original key.
Watch the intro and demonstration below:
This tune will make a great warm-up exercise for your routine.
