We’re kicking off a new tune this week: the venerable Billy In The Lowground. This is one of the all time classic flatpicking tunes. Everyone knows and plays this one, and for good reason: it’s really fun to play! It also has a couple of tricks up it’s sleeve that we’ll look at in subsequent lessons. But for now, let your focus rest on the good flatpicking fundamentals of staying loose, relaxed, and finding a nice groove to your playing.
