Welcome back to violintutorpro.com I'm Mike Sanchez and today we’re going to learn how to play Rocky Top on violin.
And to briefly explain the way I write my music, quotations will be eighth notes, the first and second ending here. Double dashes will be whole notes and everything else will be a quarter notes. And I will explain just the string name and fingering. So, if you don’t follow this feel free to watch to what I'm doing—my fingering and my bow.
Let’s start off with four E’s, and then E one twice, F sharp and then three eighth notes, E, open E, A two sharp and then A zero. And then the first standing is going to be A two open A’s, A one, open A. So it’s going to be. And then last it’s going to be a whole note C# four beats, 1-2-3-4. You repeat that. The second standing will be similar to that but a little bit different. And then open A for four beats, 1-2-3-4. Second line 2 F#’s quarter eighth notes. And then whole note two beats, G natural. The first note will be the quarter note and then three eighth notes. And then open E. And then E one for four beats, 1-2-3-4. Let’s do that second line.
The last line, two F# whole notes, two eighth notes. This would be the dotted quarter half note, three beats, two eighth notes open A, and open A, A one, A one again, A two for four beats, 1-2-3-4. Two an open A eighth notes and then A, open A quarter note, A one and then A two, A one eighth notes. The last note is zero four beats, 1-2-3-4. So last line quickly.
Let’s go top to bottom slowly. And there’s some a little place you can kind of slide in there like at the beginning. You know about the chorus. It’s kind of mixed up a little bit making it country. So as I put the right sound on the violin, please visit my YouTube page, www.youtube.com/violintutorpro or learnviolin. That’s a new website I buy on tutorpro.com. See you there.
