This week we're going to learn how Norman Blake plays the melody on Nashville Blues. As we learned last week, Nashville Blues has 3 big phrases. The first phrase is pretty close to the melody, but it's played with a little bit of impressionism. That is to say, it's hard to pin point every single note but easy to capture the overall melody. With each subsequent phrase Norman gets further from the sung melody but, paradoxically what he is playing becomes clearer from a note for note standpoint.
Take your time, strive for tone and pick it solid!
