VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Intro and Demo This tune is in the key of D, which means there is a C# and an F#. It has two parts, Parts A & B, like most fiddle tunes. At first, Vi plays for us a stripped down version - as close to the melody as he can manage to do. But by the 3rd time through, you'll notice a couple of variations on the melody, and Vi played the B Part in a higher octave.
2. A Part
High Octave
Here Vi plays the melody of the A part an octave higher. He points out that the rhythm of the 1st phrase is the same as the rhythm in the 2nd phrase - a common theme in fiddle tunes.
3. B Part In this video, Vi lays out the melody notes of the B Part.
4. B Part
High Octave
Vi follows the same process in a higher octave. He recommends switching back and forth between octaves for variation.
5. All Together For the final run-through of the entire tune, Vi plays it through slowly so you can practice along with him.
