Guitar Tablature: “Turkey in the Straw”
Learning how to play “Turkey in the Straw” on guitar will give you a chance to practice playing in position. To play “Turkey in the Straw,” you need to know how to play in seventh position and what saying “day-day to the wagon tongue” means. Notice how cool playing up the neck feels instead of playing way down in open position . . . where the beginners play.
Whenever you’re playing in position, remember to keep your left hand in a fixed position, perpendicular to the neck, with your first finger at a given fret and the other fingers following in order, one per fret. Hold the fingers over the appropriate frets, very close to the fretboard, even if they’re not fretting notes at the moment.
