Lesson notes

Xavier Rudd is a very talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist from Australia. He is an accomplished fingerstyle guitars as well, as heard in this tune, Follow The Sun. It was released in 2012 on his album Spirit Bird.

The song is played in Double Dropped D Tuning and capoed at the fifth fret.The chord shapes and left hand changes are very easy but the speed of the picking is the big challenge in playing this, along with singing and playing the harmonica, of course. The picking pattern is pretty basic though, and the song could be strummed as well.
