In this post, you’ll learn how to play the moving, old gospel tune I’ll Fly Away on your 3-string cigar box guitar.
In the video above, Glenn Watt shares one way how to play I’ll Fly Away on a cigar box guitar tuned GDg.
To better help you learn this terrific song, the video includes on-screen tablature which indicates where you need to put your fingers on the fretboard.
“Wait,” you may be thinking, “I don’t play a fretted CBG. I play slide-guitar.”
Well, that’s fine, too! Because of the way I’ll Fly Away has been arranged for this lesson, you can learn the song on your 3-string slide CBG.
Just follow along with the numbers you see on the screen and place your slide over the corresponding fret lines on your guitar.
Check out another gospel song lesson here on CigarBoxGuitar.com. This one is for the tune Down To The River To Pray, also arranged for 3-string CBGs.
