Billy In The Lowground is frequently the first tune in the key of C that flatpickers learn. This arrangement is straightforward and easy to read but if you spend most of your time playing in G, you’ll likely find this one to be a tougher one to tackle. Billy In The Lowground also is one of the few tunes on this site that comes in the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced difficulty so its a good one to grow with. Enjoy!
(Beginning guitar tabs include a clear simple version of the melody as well as chord markings above. My tabs at this level are intended to be affordable, to the point, and no nonsense. Perfect for the beginner that wants a straightforward version of a classic melody or the intermediate to advanced player that wants to learn a melody but embellish it themselves. Some fiddle tunes are difficult enough that a beginning or even intermediate version is unavailable.)
