Sometimes in life it might feel like your dog is your only friend.
That’s what this song is about!
With the sheet music and ukulele tab, try your hand at picking the chords for Little Old Log Cabin In The Lane played in the country and bluegrass style.
Listen to a performance of Little Old Log Cabin In The Lane fingerpicked on the ukulele. Instead of strumming the chords of the song, pick an uptempo syncopated country and bluegrass picking rhythm. I teach how to play this song in Lesson 4 from the advanced-level Country & Bluegrass Pickin’ course in Club Ukulele.
The repeating picking pattern is featured in the first measure of the song.
The first step to learning this song is to practice the picking pattern that shows up in the first measure of the song.
The second step is to learn the chords. The third step is to pick through the song’s chord progression while counting out loud (no singing).
Once you’ve done those three steps, begin to hum and sing out the melody of the song.
Remember to take it slow at first, and if you still can’t get it, I teach you how to fingerpick in the Fingerpicking Tricks online video lesson course.
