In this version of the traditional song, "Lord Franklin", you'll hear me use the 4-Step Pattern Variation #1, as well as the D suspended 4 figure, the D suspended 2 figure, and the A suspended 2 hammer-on figure. You'll also hear the Bass Run between G and Em. All of these figures appear in the tablature below, as well as in previous lessons in Acoustic Fingerpicking Step-by-Step, Level 2.
Think of these songs as examples of how you might use fingerpicking patterns and ornaments to create an arrangement for any song you choose.
Here are the lyrics to a version of this song:
LORD FRANKLIN'S LAMENT
(D)While homeward bound one night (G)on the deep(Bass Run)
(D)I dreamed a dream that I (G)thought was (D)true(Dmaj7)
With a hundred seamen he sailed away
The frozen ocean in the month of May
To seek a passage around the pole
Where we poor seamen do sometimes go
Through cruel hardships the mainly strove
Their ship on mountains with ice was drove
Only the Eskimo in his skin canoe
Was the only one that ever came through
In Baffin Bay where the whalefish blow
The fate of Franklin no man may know
The fate of Franklin no tongue can tell
Lord Franklin along with his sailors do dwell
And now my burden it gives me pain
For my long lost Franklin I'd cross the main
Ten thousand pounds I would freely give
To say on earth that my Franklin do live
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
