Howdy, !

I’ve Been All Around This World

Lesson ID: A0179

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play the traditional song called “I’ve been All Around This World”. First we’ll work through the main chord progression to this song and we’ll practice singing the verses with the chords & lyrics. Next you’ll learn two flatpicking guitar instrumental breaks. The first instrumental break brings in a lot of this song’s traditional melody and the second instrumental break has some nice flatpicking licks in the style of Bryan Sutton. Tablature files are available below the lesson video.

Note: Instrumental Break Progression = Verse Progression + Two Extra Measures of C at the end

Hi Devin, I watched your picking hand and it seems that you don’t bend your thumb, do you? I began to have a little thumb joint pain, maybe the way I strum guitar and play scales I hold my pick too hard. I have seen my thumb bending but not much about my wrist.Any advices? Have a nice evening Devin!
