Hi there, welcome to OnlineLessonVideos.com I'm Ian Walsh. I'm going to teach you a tune today called the Kitchen Girl. I play this in the key of A what I sometimes call A modal because you're going to play instead of a G in the sharp position you're going to play it in the natural position. So if you play the scale in the A in the E string it might look like this. And then back down, that the G in the natural. And then when we get to the second part we’re also going to play a C in the natural position, but we’ll get into that as the lesson goes on. So this is-I'm going to play along right now the Kitchen Girl to a jam track of it at 120 beats per minute. So we begin the first measure of this tune on the high A on the E string right here and we play these notes. Let’s try that again. And what I like to do in the first part is get a little bit of A and E string play together. You're going to use your bow to do this and you’re just going to bow the A and E string at the same time. I'm trying to get a real even tone out of each string there. So now I'm going to try to play these notes while letting the bow kind of bleed on the A string, as well as the E string. Okay, now from there we continue where we’re already—where at the C and of course we’re playing an open E. But we’re going to continue from the C and here are the notes. Let’s try that again. And now I'm going to do it using the fourth finger so you can see exactly which notes I'm playing if you're getting confused when you're seeing me play a no note. And now when you have this learn pretty well, we’re going to do that same double stop work with the bow and we’re going to play both strings the A and the E while playing the section of notes here. So it sounds like this. And it’s up to you to decide how much you want to blend the two string or how little you want to do it. Here it is one more time from the C. So let’s try to put these two sections together and we’ll have the first half of Kitchen Girl here. Let’s try one more time and we’re going to blend the A and E strings together. Let’s move on and get the rest of the first part learned.
