My fingerstyle arrangement of Stephen Foster's beautiful song Hard Times. Heard it sung on the Transatlantic Sessions, then heard Stephen Baugham's frailing guitar version and was moved by both. Then I heard a bit of it by Mary Flower and the ideas started flowing, and this is the result, tho' it still has a way to go. Hope you enjoy. Comments are welcome. An exercise/tune I put together after a week at SAMW music camp in NH in 2011. Spent the whole week trying to absorb what Eddie was teaching. Shows what the thumbpick could add to my attempts at John Hurt, Travis, Atkins and Maybelle stylings.
