Freight train is a fingerpicking classic. This song has become synonymous with Elizabeth Cotton. Make sure to listen to her version if you haven't already. Elizabeth played the guitar upside down long before Jimi Hendrix ever thought about it. She often used the two finger "Cotton" picking style. This means her thumb was getting the lead lines on the treble and her index got the bass strings. We're gonna have to do it a bit different unless you want to flip that guitar upside down, but we don't recommend that! Enjoy this one folks.
