Today’s tune is a another French-Canadian tune called The Indian. What makes this tune so fun to play is that it begins in the key of G, and then switches to the key of C for the B part. On the surface, it looks fairly easy, but I found out real quick that it takes some work to play it up to speed. We have an accordion player in our group who, when this tune is called, really cranks it up tempo. That makes it fun, but definitely more challenging.:) THe melody does follow the chord structure a good part of the time, so that’s a little hint on how to place your fingers, as well as utilizing the open strings.
Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Indian, The – Gtr TAB
I could not find any video so that you could hear it played….
As always, put down the remote, the device, the cell, and pick up your guitar. You’ll be glad that you did!!
