Run Away - Sarah Jarosz - Guitar Lesson
Songs & Artists - Sarah Jarosz

Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Sarah Jarosz is a young and very talented American musician and singer-songwriter from Texas. She has already released three succesful albums and has been called a ‘songwriter of uncommon wisdom.’ She is also described as a comtemporary bluegrass prodigy. Besides the guitar, she plays the banjo, claw hammer banjo, mandoline and octave mandolin.

In this lesson we take a look at the opening track of her second album, Follow Me Down, called ‘Run Away’, which she performs on the guitar. Although it features a fairly easy chord progression, the fast travis picking pattern makes it quite challenging and good fingerpicking skills are absolutely needed to get this song down. It is played in an unusual alternate tuning: F A D G A E, where the sixth string is tuned up to F and the second string is tuned down to A. She also uses a capo at the first fret.
