Welcome back everybody,
today I've got a really cool tune, one of
tunes instrumental songs that I get to do.
It's one called Cherokee Shuffle and I'm
sure you've heard of this one,
maybe played it in jams and so I worked up
a version for
you sort of the advanced version maybe
that I would play.
And key of A, you know, it's got [SOUND] a
bunch of rolls,
you know, trying to stick pretty close to
So, you know,
it starts off with a few pickup notes,
and then a couple forward rolls.
And so with this one, I'm,
I'm doing the melody with rolls, you know,
that the melody is sort of embedded in
these rolls, so.
So between, you know,
between each of the melody notes,
you'll hear rolling notes,
that would be the melody,
and what we add is,
a few of those extra notes to keep
things moving along,
big slide up to that that minor chord on
the eleventh fret, [SOUND] F sharp minor,
You know, I kind,
I kinda do a reverse roll on that,
just make sure you're avoiding those major
notes, the second and fifth string, and
two big three notepads
on that and then some hammer-ons,
pretty straightforward hammer-ons and
And you'll notice a lot of times,
I do add those double stops,
and then it starts over,
does it twice,
little roll on that.
Nothing too spectacular, but,
keeps it moving, again,
these big pads [SOUND] that gives you a
little break and
so you just play that twice through and
a couple of pickup notes that lead you
into the B part that's, starts on a big
four chord, the D.
And here I've got a neat roll,
you can refer to the,
the music for this, the tab,
and that roll leads you through back to
the one chord where you do these so,
And so watch my right hand to make
sure you're in the right spot,
so I do that with my on the second third
and fourth strings [SOUND] with the middle
index thumb, [SOUND] and
then the, the, thumb starts the roll,
so forward, three strings
and then thumb middle [SOUND] thumb.
And then when you get up to this
major third, [SOUND] up here on the
I tilt my bar so I can do a reverse roll,
And then once again to give you a break,
two big pads
and with that, with that bunch of
hammer-ons and pull-offfs, we're trying to
[SOUND] on the minor chord to six minor,
with a roll and then just a
like to round out the whole passage.
and that minor roll, and
then just the standard
to end it.
So, you know, just wanna get some of those
cool rolls in there that all flow
together, pay attention to what the right
hand is doing.
And, yeah, just try it along with the
backing tracks and
if you get it going fast enough you can
always use a metronome to, take yourself,
sorta to the next level.
So, hope you dig the Cherokee Shuffle and,
feel free and
send me a video if you ever have any
questions about this stuff.
Always like to hear from you, talk to you
