Visit the iTunes store for either individual songs or the complete Return CD. Leather Britches (sometimes spelled Leather Breeches), is a song that originated in the Appalachian area and is part of our long-time fiddle tune traditional songs.
In this lesson on Flatpicking Guitar you will learn to play the Intermediate Arrangement of Leather Britches and this arrangement is based loosely on Kenny's arrangement.
You will hear many versions of this break, and they range from a medium-fast tempo to very fast.
As is usual for most flatpicking guitar melodies, this one is typically played in the key of "A" and as it is tabbed in "G" you will most likely need to use a capo on the second fret of your guitar when playing this with others. The arrangement by Kenny is in the Key of G Major though which is a break from tradition.
Have fun with this one and be sure to start out very slowly and work up to speed of about 210 beats per minute. (This means you play 420 eighth notes per minute).
