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.

won’t knowwhere 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.

I was the VFSS Treasurer for a few years then moved on to host the Pickers Circle on Zoom when we were hit by Covid 19 in 2020.
