Arkansas Traveler

The tune of the day is

ARKANSAS  TRAVELER

This is one of those old standards, but it’s on the more difficult side because of the B part. I tried to keep the melody very basic. Arkansas Traveler is flatpicked a lot, and there are many complex versions available, online or in books, after you have mastered the tune.

And yes, most of you will be singing the Baby Bumblebee song as you play the A part!

Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Arkansas Traveler – Gtr TAB

There were SO MANY videos on YouTube that it was hard for me to chose one. I finally chose this one due to the fact that it wasn’t played at lightning speed so that you can hear all of the notes in order to learn the tune. 🙂

As always, put down those electronic devices, the TV remote, or even that good book, and carve out a few minutes to work on your guitar. You’ll be glad that you did!

Blessings
