VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration This is a tune that Vi recorded with Steve Eulberg on their albumn called Fiddle Whamdiddle. First Vi plays through the entire tune.
2. Melody, A Part Here Vi plays the A Part, slowly and without ornamentation.
3. Melody, B Part The B Part starts with an octave jump, which is inspired the title High Hop Ladies among some. Vi compares the structure of the A Part and the B Part.
4. Put It Together 1 Vi plays through both Parts A & B, adding in some ornamentation this time.
5. Put It Together 2 In this video, Vi points out the accidental (high 3). Although the tune is played in the key of G, Vi likes to end the tune with the D chord instead - like Cajun fiddlers.
