In this version of the traditional song, "The Water is Wide", you'll hear me use the 4-Step Pattern Variation #1, as well as a Bass Run from C to Am, and the G suspended 4 figure. All of these figures appear in the tablature below, as well as in previous lessons in this tutorial, Acoustic Fingerpicking Step-by-Step, Level 2.
In this lesson you'll learn the arrangement for the song, and then in the next lesson we will play it all the way through together. Here's a version of the lyrics for The Water is Wide:
THE WATER IS WIDE
(C)The water is wide, (F)I cannot cross (C)O'er
(C to Am Run)Neither have I wings to (Gsus4 figure)fly
And both shall (C)row, (F)my (G)love and (C)I
A ship there is and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not so deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim
I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a trusty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
So did my love prove false to me
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!
