Watch the Arkansas Traveler online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 7: Style Variations

Arkansas Traveler - Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by Cathy Fink and is sourced from Bluegrass Rhythm Handbook.

The challenge to playing this tune at tempo is the quick chord changes. Sometimes I'll stick with the alternating bass notes and sometimes I'll skip a chord and put in a longer bass run; it might even be a chromatic bass run. If you sing the melody of the tune, you'll get it into your head and start feeling where the chords change more easily.
