Watch the Poor Wayfaring Stranger - 6 online guitar lesson by Richard Kiser from Gospel Fingerstyle Guitar

This refrain is something you can use as a great exercise for fingerpicking where you are using an alternating bass while playing a simple melody. The notes are simply played on the second string in this pattern; "C","B","C","D","C","B","C". You play these notes while holding an "Am" chord and alternating the bass, then play "F", then play "D7", and end it with a suspended "E" chord.
