Oneof the most versatile and most widely used acoustic guitar accompaniment stylesis ‘Cotton Picking"-a staple for any fingerstyle guitarist. This accompanimentstyle was so named after the woman who first popularized this technique in theearly part of the 20th Century, Elizabeth Cotton. Born Elizabeth Nevills on 5January 1893 near Chapel Hill in North Carolina, Elizabeth was a self-taughtmusician, singer, and songwriter who developed this unique accompaniment style.Also referred to as ‘Travis Picking’ and attributed to Merle Travis, thispattern-based fingerstyle guitar accompaniment should most certainly beattributed to Elizabeth Cotton and not Merle Travis. This arrangement of 'Freight Train' by Dennis McCorkle for solo fingerstyle guitar is an excellent representation of this style of playing. Includes standard sheet music notation and Tablature with fingeringsfor both the left and right hands.

This product was created by a member of ArrangeMe, Hal Leonard’s global self-publishing community of independent composers, arrangers, and songwriters. ArrangeMe allows for the publication of unique arrangements of both popular titles and original compositions from a wide variety of voices and backgrounds.
