One Piece At A Time. Johnny Cash
A feel-good factor signature Johnny Cash riff here that will just make you smile when you play it. It sounds simple, but there are a couple of subtle differences that you must master to help it sound authentic.
Using the four lowest strings, it will help with your left and right hand co-ordination as you strive to make sure all the notes sound out really clearly, in true JC style. There is also a switch to the F chord at the end of the lead riff, so this will present a further challenge as you change from one finger to five.
Andy feels like smiling, so he’s gonna play it again!!!
