Freight Train - Classic Fingerstyle Song!

An embedded YouTube video is missing from here because you have video cookies disabled.


This song was massive for my fingerstyle playing. It was the first proper 'boom chuck' bass + melody song i learned, and it had a knock on effect that made everything easier.

This lesson is in support of my Fingerstyle course, which you can learn more about here.

Unfortunately, since filming the rights for me to share the TAB with you guys have be revoked, so you'll just have to follow the video and create your own TAB sheet for reference. As this is my own arrangement, it won't line up to any other commercially available TABs, my apologies! 

See the original version by fingerstyle pioneer Elizabeth Cotton who wrote this song. Check out more great covers further down this page, each with their own interpretation!
