Forked Deer Intermediate Tab PartA - Acoustic Guitar Lesson
Forked Deer Intermediate Tab PartA - Another good exercise in flatpick guitar technique. This song is important to know for parking lot pickin
Forked Deer was one of about a dozen of the first flatpicking tune that I learned on the acoustic guitar.
It is a great tune and doesn't have any really difficult parts, so is you know your way around on many of the songs have been presented here, you won't have any problems with this one either.
One of the best arrangements of this song you will hear is on the Bluegrass '97 CD which was a yearly CD that was put out several years ago by various artists. Although this arrangement does not follow the break by Jeff Autry, it will give you a great break to put in your listing of memorized songs.
This songs kicks off with a triplet pick-up note combination that involves a hammer on that is executed with a downstroke of the pick for the first two notes, followed by an up stroke on the 3rd or last note of the triplet.
This song is mainly played in the open first position, so this will keep things simple for you. Watch your down-ups strokes carefully so you can realize your full speed potential.
Play this break ultimately at about 220 beats per minute, which is about how you will hear most preformances of this classic song.
