Old Grimes

B Section Melody Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris: 

Hello Everyone, This week we're carrying on with the B-part of Old Grimes. We haven't seen a fiddle tune yet where there is an extended chunk of melody that occurs over a minor chord. This week we fix that! Also, in playing said chunk of melody we use a variation on the Tony Rice trick from Gold Rush where you use an open string to pivot from a position up the neck back down into open position.
