Hi Country Friends,

I'm new here. My Name is Olli and I'm from Germany...so sorry for my bad english.

Today I tried to write down the first Guitar Solo of Merle Travis - "I Think..."

Its a exercise for me to train my ear.

What do you guys think about it?

 

In the secon Post I will show it on my guitar.

 

Greetings

Gitarrenkloppi

Thanks Guys! Are there any mistakes in my Solo Version? Maybe the fingering could be better worked out.

 

I noticed a embrassing mistake. The Song is from Merle Haggard, not Merle Travis 😀 I have to change this in the PDF.
