In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play the traditional bluegrass tune called “Cold Frosty Morning”. This song dates back to the 1700s and it has become a favorite tune played at bluegrass jams. It’s a great song to use for working on your bluegrass flatpicking — practice picking the melody at a slow pace in the beginning and increase your speed in increments. Also, don’t worry about volume at first. Try to pick each note with a nice, clean, and soft pick stroke. This will help you build the right technique and the speed and volume will develop over time. “Cold Frosty Morning” guitar tablature is available for download below the lesson video.
