Tablature link : Freight teach is a fantastic song to getting started with playing fingerstyle guitar. This lesson features 4 versions of this song and with each translation there will be some things added. This is the first translation (simple) and it starts from the really beginning. It features some fundemantal basics like alternate bass, independent fingers etc. and It is based on 4 simple chords in C. It’s split up in 8 parts and I’ve tried to clarify it step by step and in a slowed down way. Grade : Beginner Tablature can be found on : For the tabledit tablature of all versions just leave me an send by e-mail. This song is written by Elizabeth Cotten. Hope you’ll delight in!!

    Geweldige les haha! Ik ben hier totaal nieuw mee maar wil het graag goed kunnen….. gister een kaartje gekocht voor Tommy Emmanuel op 14 Januari! Dan wil ik eigenlijk les 4 wel vloeiend kunnen spelen… eens zien of dat haalbaar is!

    English is doubtless this guys second language. How many of you haters can say you don’t speak your “second language” very well?

  3. wildwestpoint says:

    hi, thanks for the fantastic lesson! What other songs do you recommend using this approach (alternate bass & melody) for me to practice on?

    Ik houd van duidelijk nederlandse accenten :D

  5. getupanddosomething says:

    I’m an experienced guitarist and guitar teacher who’s chose to pick up fingerstyle and I found this lesson very informative. Thanks for breaking the tune up, because my chops just aren’t ready for the full translation yet!

    Helps a bunch. Very clear explanations. I commend you on what looks like a lot of effort applied.

  7. Bulbuzor says:

  16. ZuurstofNL says:

    @Ich1NL Dat probleem had ik nou ook. Mooi eerst maar eens deze versie proberen, al die rare akkoorden die Tommy gebruikt maakt het niet makkelijker voor een beginner:D

  21. denplaza says:

    This song is hard to play for a beginner. Beginners can very nearly by no means use that G chord spreading your ring fiddle with and pinky so far apart.
    Nice explanation tho :)

  22. MikeyMac99 says:

    your accent kicks ass :)

  23. Ich1NL says:

    Bedankt. Ik zat een tijd naar de tommy emmanuel video te kijken. Maar ik kon er niet echt uit komen.

  24. spinolex says:

    @Brynjulvify check out stephan grossman’s people blues dvd he teaches a simple translation as the first song. its a three dvd lesson and its a fantastic foundation for this kind of playing.
