This song is played with capo on the third fret and out of the D position which means it’s in the key of E. The chord progression for “Blue Railroad Train” uses an A – A – B – B form. When playing rhythm guitar on this tune, the form differs slightly over the lead vs lyrics verses. This song will get you soloing using the D major scale and you can use the licks you learn in this song in your lead playing.
In this video lesson, I cover the song in detail including both part A and part B of the lead section and the rhythm guitar parts. Check out the entire first part!
