Hello my name is Mike Sanchez and welcome to violintutorpro.com. And today we’ll going to learn a very advanced feeling song called “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and we’re going to learn part one of that of a multi part series on how to play this particular piece. And this will be the very beginning of a song.
Let me explain to you quickly what I have here the different notes we’re going to be playing on different strings as far as fingerings also. And arrows will be if the notes will be high or low. By now I'm hoping that you have some kind of experience playing the violin otherwise this might be a little tough.
Let’s start from the beginning. The ones in quotations are eighth notes and everything else are quarter notes. So the beginning will be A three, A two, A three, E zero. A two, extra three, A three, open E and then E one low. Next part two eighth notes three space apart of quarter note. This will be E three, E four, B flat right next to the three, E three again, space two G, E one low and I'm going to play A four. So this particular section of eighth notes will be—okay?
Next part will be A two, A zero, A two, A three and the A twos are natural. And then E quarter note and then a set of six eighth notes, open E, low one, two, A three, E two, low one E one again and then you're going to put an open E. Pick up on the next section E zero, A zero. So we just did the whole first line. Let’s do that really quick.
And the second line here we’re going to do the all eighth notes all the way to the very end and there was just a few accidentals in here. A one, A one, B flat otherwise it’s will be F naturals and C naturals. So start here A three, A four, open A, C natural, D, C natural, open A, B flat, A two, C natural, B flat, G and the D, A, E flat, F natural, G, D four, G, D zero, F natural. And then we’re going to have dotted quarter notes one and a half beats for the G one, G two.
And these will all be quarter notes. Pretty much all naturals except for B flats, F naturals and we’ll shift in the third position here on A and E and then a C natural third finger and then stretch it to fifth position for the last note—E four. So we’ll shift up into third position and then C natural then shift in the fifth. So where your third finger is you're going to put your first then you play four it should be a flat and then you just do that all the way down quite a bit down to E string.
So this third line—awesome. So let’s do top to bottom part one of Devil Went Down to Georgia a little bit faster. The only things I will add in there is some of the slurring and stuff. Like the first two notes you're going to slur—and then the next phrase you can slur that and then the second line you can slur those. You can tie these together. So just a few little phrasing things there you can do.
