Hi and welcome to OnlineLessonVideos. I’m Ian Walsh and I’m here to teach you a tune on the fiddle today called Salt Creek which I play on the key of A and I’ll teach a tune in the key of A.
I’m going to play along to an MP3 jam track to the tune. And I’m going to start off this lesson with a sample of the tune, played along with the jam track. So here it is, Salt Creek in the key of A. [Music Playing]
So this tune, Salt Creek starts off in the A string and we’re just going to play without any other strings right now and then I’ll show you how you can do some nice double stop work with it. So it starts off A-A-B-A and then [Demonstration]. So put those notes together and we get [Demonstration] up to the D and you hang out there for a minute.
Here it’s again. [Demonstration]
Here it’s and you’ll a slight variations of this little B and A, and here we go. [Demonstration] Okay, with kind of a pull off on the C sharp there.
You can play this with the E note on the D strings but what works a little bit better is using your fourth finger to create a dual A effect. So all you do then is you just try to keep the fourth finger independent of just on that D string and try to stretch it so it comes over and it doesn’t hit the A or the E string and then you just play those notes. So for now, let’s just leave the fourth finger there and not worry about it to not play the string, so see if you can keep it there. [Demonstration]
Okay, so I just have my fourth finger sitting there and not touching the A string, just on the D string and it should be in tune hopefully. So one more time without playing it—without playing the D string just the A string. [Demonstration]
Okay, so there’s no difference there. Now, we’re going to play both D and the A string at the same time. And we’re going to play up to those notes, keeping everything the same. So we start off [Demonstration]. And it’s tough to get everything the sound in tune but with practice, your tone should come along. [Demonstration]
Here it’s again. [Demonstration]
Sometimes I’ll use kind of a different bowing [Demonstration] so that’s [Demonstration] okay. Let’s move on to the next part.
