Watch the Buffalo Girls Etude online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Fingerstyle Milestones
All right we're going to learn a new song now, and before we learn this song, I just want to tell you that this is another milestone for you. Not just learning the songs, but learning these new skills, which is really what it's all about, so that you can learn more songs. So I'm going to teach you Buffalo Girls, but before that I want to show you some exercises to prepare you for playing this song. I also want to say a big thanks to my friend John Knowles for giving me the idea to teach Buffalo Girls, because I asked him if he knew any nice, simple melodies for this course, and he said well, what about this one. So I'm going to show you these exercises which are going to prepare you to play Buffalo Girls. I've put the song in the key of G, which is your bass note and your anchor point, which you'll be holding down with your second finger.
