VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration
of Simple Melody
The Peek-A-Boo Waltz is a tune that traveled with the pioneers taking the westward trails going through Kansas City toward the new world. In this video, Steve demonstrates the melody.
2. Fancier Version Next Steve plays an embellished version of the melody.
3. Chords, Part A
Back-Up 1
Steve plays the back-up part of Part A by striking the root of the chord with his right hammer, and then playing the other two notes of the chord with hammers together.
4. Chords, Parts A & B
Back-Up 1
After repeating the chords for part A, Steve moves on to the chords for Part B.
5. Back-Up 2 Here Steve adds single notes that harmonize with the melody, as well as chords. This back-up arrangement moves away from the um-pah-pah feel of Back-Up 1.
6. Putting It Together Here Steve combines elements from all the videos to create a lovely arrangement that makes you want to grab your sweetheart and twirl her around in a waltz.

  • This lesson is also available for fiddle players.

 

Are you saying, “I know what a fiddle is but what is a whamdiddle?”  The whamdiddle is a slang name for the hammered dulcimer; “hog fiddle” is a slang name for the mountain dulcimer, both are traditional American folk instruments.  Together with the fiddle they make for a porch-picking, knee-slapping good time.
