Lesson notes

*I Ride An Old Paint*refers to a cowboy’s horse and heading to Montana to round up wild horses. Its verses tell the typical stories of tragedy in the west and the dying cowboy’s last request. Songs like this are commonly done with various chord progressions and many slightly different melodies. This version is done similar to Woody Guthrie’s using just two of the three primary chords in a key. Multiple keys are presented as well.
