VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration Steve demonstrates a fun Celtic tune, a slip jig in 9/8 time, called Another Jig Will Do.
2. Tune Characteristics In this video, Steve explains some interesting twists to this lively Irish tune. For example, you may find the 9/8 time challenging at first, but after time it will feel natural. The tune is based on the mixolydian scale, and the A part is shorter than the B part. But the A part is repeated, so both parts come out equal in length.
3. Strategies for Playing
3 Note Chords
In this video, Steve explains, one by one, 3 different strategies for playing chords with 3 notes.
4. Using the Strategies
in the Tune
Here Steve applies all the variations as he supports the tune with 3 note chords in his arrangement of the tune.
5. Which Chords? This tune is written in the myxolydian mode, and we use the A chord, the E chord, and the flatted 7th in the G chord.
