Alright let us learn our first song; we are going to learn Bile’em Cabbage Down
It is a pretty simple song; simple song with has some kind of dammed words but you know some of these has the same things just like out there. So, that was one way to play and there is a simpler way that would be these.
So, that was just straight melody obviously needs some more stuff to charge on like a banjo. Let start adding the melody to some of the rhythm patterns we played
I will choose with the pinches. And I will always try it with a cheek a boom.
I will play just a little faster too.
So, that is pretty simple, you know it also have the chords and as well as the melody.
Right here ends up in a C chord. Try doing that break that for a while. The next thing we are going to learn is a couple of other right hand patterns.
The first pattern is something were going to add to our boom cheek a boom.
Were going to add one note in the space.
That is called the gallop, because it has a galloping sound it is also called alternating thumb roll because it’s the thumb alternating with both fingers.
Thumb index; thumb middle; thumb index; thumb middle;
Another pattern and you can take these patterns, and you can practice them with your chords as well.
And so on and so forth.
The next pattern we’ll learn is called the reverse roll or sometimes just called around the world.
It’s called the reverse roll because it goes in one direction.
And then the other way, this is forward and this is the background. Play it nice and slow.
We’ll also start that roll on the fifth string.
If you can do both as well, one and the other.
That is the nice way to connect them up if you are playing along with just the chords. Incidentally you can practice your chords to these songs, with just a straight rhythm. Instead of playing the melody as well as playing the melody.
That was Bile’em Cabbage Down, just the chords no melody. Now let’s try just putting as reverse roll, just around the world roll into Bile’em Cabbage Down. Just to make it a little more interesting.
