Red River Valley Components

This project was showing the cross-picking process. We started with the basic melody of the song, and then worked out a Carter Style arrangement. Next we used the Carter Style arrangement to then create a Cross-Picking arrangement.

Red River Valley

An old folk song and sometime referred to as a “Cowboy Love song”. Here are some of the lyrics:

From this valley they say you are going.
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile,
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our pathway a while.
So come sit by my side if you love me.
Do not hasten to bid me adieu.
Just remember the Red River Valley,
And the cowboy that has loved you so true.

I hope you enjoy the arrangements.
