This fiddle tune has become relatively unknown, but I still think it's a great tune to play on the guitar, as well as fiddle or mandolin. It has three parts, is played out of G position and capoed up to the key of A. It's pretty tough and is filled with arpeggios that you're really going to have to practice to get clean. This first lesson teaches the basic melody, and a later lesson is going to teach some advanced variations.
I first heard this tune from a live recording of Byron Berline, Sam Bush, and Mark O'Connor way back in the 70's, and the guitar licks were played by Mark O'Connor (one of the great forgotten bluegrass guitar players!). As usual, this Gold Member lesson comes with a streaming video, sheet music, TAB, and an audio file. Go pickers, go!
