Discuss the Guitar lesson: Wabash Cannonball- Crosspicking

Dating back to the 1880’s, the Wabash Cannonball is a favorite tune for many, and recognizable by all! Due to the overwhelming requests for more guitar crosspicking lessons, I’ve decided to tackle this ol’ melody with a couple different crosspicking patterns. The first solo played uses forward rolls, while the second pass through interprets the melody using reverse rolls. This is great practice to get our right hands working, while expanding our “crosspicking” abilities. Keep 'er on the tracks, and enjoy!
