  • This arrangement of Freight Train is almost identical to the Beginner arrangement. It's just one octave higher. There are a few more stretches in this arrangement and the licks are more challenging as well. Try to work on your tone when playing the basic arrangement. If the pick is flat on the string or close to the bridge, you'll get a brighter sound. If the pick is turned to the leading edge strikes the string first, or you move the attack point closer to the neck, you'll get a darker sound. TONE MATTERS!

    Play Intermediate
  • This arrangement of Freight Train doesn't use many open strings. It is almost all in a closed position, and has minimal ornaments. This gives you a chance to use the lick switcher. Shuffle the licks to create a new and unique version. Notice how nice the balance is when you have a balance melody and "hot licks". That's how a truly nice lead is crafted-balance. Also, try and come up with your own licks. However, when coming up with your own ideas, don't think you need to play 16th notes all the time! A beautiful melody is all you need sometimes, and that's exactly what you have here.
