This lesson is for the classic tune ‘Freight Train’ done in the key of C. I’ve created two arrangements for this tune. The first time through we’ll learn a basic Carter Style version where we’ll play the melody ‘right within the chords.’ The second time through we’ll get a little fancy and become more expressive with the melody by adding hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and eighth note runs. We’ll also move amove into 3rd position and play the melody on the higher strings, almost like a Doc Watson Approach.
