Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right is a song from Bob Dylan’s second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, his first to feature his own compositions. The song is famous for it’s rapid fingerpicking, which probably was not done by Bob. This lesson treats it a bit generically and focuses on the important embellishments that are incorporated into fairly basic patterns.
The use of the capo in this, and most songs, is really determined by the vocal range of the performer. I also figured that many people don't have a capo handy when watching a lesson. So "the way one would most likely enjoy playing the song" is really different for everybody. Even Bob doesn't always do this at the 4th fret. As far as the picking, the first verse is tabbed out very accurately and all the other verses just have minor variations, which is the skill students need to develop by varying the picking and experimenting. I'm sorry you were disappointed in this lesson but the focus og learning here at TG is more on developing your musicianship rather than learning by rote memorization and mimicry.

It would be nice if you taught the lesson as advertised in your 'free preview.' I understand it's just key, but I find it strange that you opted to teach the lesson without the capo as opposed to your preview. It would be nice to be able to learn the way one would most likely enjoy playing the song, since your intro speaks to the history of the original song and how it was played. You also do not detail the picking as well as I thought you would. I think the picking and progression lessons would have had some overlap rather than giving the basics and making us 'learn what you did wrong.'
I like your style of teaching, but have to say was disappointed in this lesson.
