Lesson notes

Like most songs by Jimmy Webb, Highwayman became better known by other artists. In this lesson we go over Glen Campbell’s 1979 version and the version that named the group The Highwaymen, an occasional gathering of Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. There is a segment to listen and try to figure out yourself, as well as segments on strumming it like The Highwaymen and fingerpicking it like Glen Campbell. The fingerpicking arrangement is not covered very specifically other than the intro, so a bit of proficiency in Travis Picking is necessary.
