Skip to My Lou

Last summer, I wrote that I was learning fingerpicking on the guitar using DVDs from Homespun Tapes. I've made a small recording of me playing "Skip to My Lou", a very simple song that sounds pretty interesting with the steady alternating bass beat from my thumb. This is the first song off that DVD set.

Skip to my Lou - 696K (44 seconds)


  1. Travis picking, syncopated rhythm or whatever it's called, this is the guitar playing style I like alot. Thanks for the sample. Sounds awesome! Feel free to throw in some vocals next time, eh :-)

  2. I will have to try the singing thing, but my microphone is kind of lame. It barely does justice to the guitar! And a more pressing excuse: it's difficult to sing and play at the same time. It's all about timing, and it's hard to keep the rhythm and sing along.
