    My Favorite

    Gabe Dixon Band


    This is a simplified version of the song that I created for an 8-year-old student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

    Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.
