Welcome to onlinevideoslessons.com. My name is Will and today, we’re going to be learning Old Joe Clark. It’s usually played in the key of A but today for the sake of the lesson, we’ll play it in the key of G. Let’s get started.
All right, let’s look at measure one here and I have just one measure intro to the tune. It’s going to sound like this slowly. It’s going to start on this F# or 4th fret on the D string here and you’re going to slide to the 5th string, to the 5th right here. [Demonstration]
And that right there, it gets you another tune now slide to the [Demonstration] let’s do that again. [Demonstration]
So you’re going to do to the slide from the 4th fret to the 5th right here on the 4th string. And as you do that, you’re going to play that G string on top of it. Let’s just do that and then you’re going to play the top open D string, the 5th string, and then you’re going to come back to the G string open. [Demonstration]
And what some banjo players like to do is they like to play that four times in a row like this. [Demonstration]
And they finish it with a 5th string to an open D string. So slowly if you want to put this together. I only put one measure over on the beginning of it because I didn’t want to take up too much space. But slowly an intro would sound like this without a lick here [Demonstration]
And that gets us into the tune. So that lick again is the [Demonstration] and then a 5th string to our 1st string. [Demonstration] That’s how you connect that little run there. [Demonstration]
Okay, let’s move on to measure two when we get into the tune here.
