  • Freight train, freight train, run so fast...No! Wait! Slow Down! Yes this is a Beginner arrangement but if it feels to fast for you, slow it down! Use the tempo adjuster to get it at a speed that's easy for you. Heck, press pause, and learn it a measure at a time without the metronome or backing track. Getting the notes right, is more important than playing fast.
