I'll fly away lesson for Taryn

@theChristiancowgirl here’s the first solo for I’ll fly away, it’s Carter style, and pretty easy. There’ll be another lesson for the crosspicking solo, and then a demo of them both together. Hope it helps
(I do realize that you might not see this for a while, but I hope it helps others in the meantime)

I’ll take one order of that with extra bass runs and melodic and minor notes! Great job, I might have to learn this.

Thanks, the next video has more melodic bass runs and minor flair, so stay tuned

Ok here’s part two, the crosspicking solo. It’s a bit tricky, but very fun. I hope I slowed it down enough, if you have any crosspicking experience it shouldn’t be a problem, just watch the pick strokes, lots of syncopation and two upstrokes in a row.
Oh, and if you want to play it in G (like if you’re playing with a banjo player) just capo 5

On my guitar, I think that might be capo 7.

Just saw them both. Thanks so much, Gunnar! I’ll get right to learnin’ them, though it’ll probably be a while before they are “show ready.”
