Arkansas Traveler - Backup

  • Backup
  • Key   C
  • Tempo   100 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD
Arkansas Traveler features regular chord movement between the C and G chords in the B section, and that can be a difficult (and fun) challenge to get the hang of. Notice the repeating measures. Measure 1 is the same as measure 3. Measure 4 is the same as measure 8. Measures 5 &7 are also the same. If you use the focus feature to practice Measures 1, 4 & 7 individually and repeatedly you'll have half of the song down! Always look over and listen to a tune several times before playing to devise a practice plan to learn a tune effectively and efficiently!
