With help from some of Leadbelly's recordings, which are heard in excerpts, Seeger demonstrates Leadbelly's techniques, including his tuning, which features slack strings, thus resulting in keys that are lower than they seem. Seeger discusses Leadbelly's rhythm and the specific fingers he uses on given strings.
