Deep River Blues

Now for the ending tag. After the first four measures of this part, you can repeat the whole thing, but I threw in a little lick to wrap it up. The real song repeats quite a few times with different verses (I think the vocalist was Bessie Smith, but I haven't actually herd the song in quite a while). The thumb is still doing Travis style bass thing, but now it's just a root to root (up an octave) movement. The melody is really syncopated and it may take some time for you to get the hang of it. Stick with it and practice slow until you get it and once again it will improve your overall fingerstyle skills. Good luck and send me a message if you're struggling or confused, I'll be glad to help in any way I can.
