This session features Train songs but that’s only a suggestion. I will go through Liz Cotton’s Freight Train as a basic introduction to Travis Picking for beginner/intermediate players. Chord shapes are C Em F and G and G7. If someone wants to do it in A we can do that.
Freight Train with a metronome
|1 2||3 4||1 2||3 4|
|Freight Train||freight train||run so||fast G A B|
|Freight train||freight train||goin’ so||fast C B Bb|
|Please don’t||say what||train I’m||on So They|
|won’t know||where I’ve||gone.|
If some just wish to play and listen we can break into two groups.
Beginners should review Chromatic and Diatonic scales but this is not a prerequisite.
