— Begin quote from “brumski”
Thanks for the input folks, i’ve decided to keep my priority Bens rhythm “course” and i’ve printed off the carter family version of wildwood flower, i’m just itching to play a “tune” this version of w/w/flower is a good mixture of rhythm and picking. such a pity it’s in “c” (read my arthritis thread), but even that is easier now, after taking advice from some of our forum members.

I hear ya on the “c” part. I had big troubles with the C chord for a long time but this song actually helped me to develop the calouse on the inside of my index finger where I hot the neck and also the muscle memory in my hand to get a good clean C chord now. Another thing that helped on this song was an even more basic version of it which can be found here
Go to the study tune link on there and they break wildwood flower down really well and even give you ideas on how its played carter style as well as cross picking Doc Watson style. Cool little site!
