Hi, we’re up here in LessonsWithTroy.com. Well today’s lesson is going to be over the old-time fiddle tune Kitchen Girl. I can add an up tempo. We’re going to do in the key of G, however, normally this song is played in the key of A. So what you can do is just capo here in your second fret, and moved everything that I showed you up two frets and it would be fine if you’re going to play with some other people in the key of A.
Let’s take this phrase by phrase and here’s the first phrase [Demonstration]. If you have your tablets here, I’d suggest that you have it printed out and set it on a stand in front of you and this phrase is basically going to cover measures one, two, three and measure four.
First, you slide up here to fret five on your first string, and then go down to fret three on the first string. And you will do the same on pull off lick. That’s zero to zero on the first string and then open second string, and open third string. So together, that little part sounds like this [Demonstration]. Once again, slowly at fret five, on your first string and then fret three and run pull off licks zero to zero. Open second string, open third string and move up here to your fifth fret to an open second string and then fifth fret on my third string. Open first string, fifth fret on my second string, fifth fret on my first string, slide it up to fret seven and then sixth to seven on my second string and then seventh fret on my third string.
Once again, that full fret I’ll explain it, fifth fret on my first string, then third fret on my first string and we’re on pull off, zero to zero on my first string, open second string, open third, move up to your fifth fret. Open second, and fifth fret on my third string and open first, fifth fret on my second, fifth fret on my first, slide up to fret seven, and sixth to seven on my second, and then seventh fret on my third.
You could play it a few times to get in your head [Demonstration], once again [Demonstration].
Let’s take a look at the right hand for that lick. Okay, this is the right hand for measures one, two, three and four. You’re going to start up with your middle finger and then over that lick, just one finger per strings. You’ve got three strings, thumbs playing your third, index is playing your second and middle is playing your first [Demonstration].
Now you have some options there. Basically, I’m just going to stick with one finger per string here. And there at the end when you slide up six to seven, you could either use your middle finger or you could use your index, whichever one feels more comfortable to you.
So that full phrase slowly, it looks like this [Demonstration], once again [Demonstration]. One more time and then we’ll move on [Demonstration].
