Okay, we are revisiting Old Joe Clark.
Because he's such a fun guy and
one of the great things about fiddle tunes
they can be adjusted you know, where you
Personal level of playing.
We already looked at Joe Clark.
Old Joe Clark as sort of a skeletal
which we really played just the melody.
And you can go back.
Check that out.
And we're gonna play a little bit more
complicated version of Old Joe Clark,
something that you might be playing, you
at a, at a little higher level jam
So, I'm gonna just go ahead and play it
So I'm gonna play it with something called
I'm gonna start this tune.
With something called potatoes.
You've heard these before, I think.
They get everybody, up to speed.
And sounds like.
Just playing the open A and E.
It's a double stop, even though I'm
stopping the strings.
It's still considered a double stop.
And I play those in the same speed.
That I play, the rest of the tune in.
And that gives everybody who's playing
along with you the chance to figure out
what the speed, is and when they come in
they're playing at the same speed as you.
Okay, so I'm gonna start with.
Four potatoes, which means one, two,
three, four, one, two, three.
So as you can see, I'm using a lot of
fourth finger there.
That is optional.
You could go.
But it's really great if you can like.
Have that fourth finger ready.
And that's something you wanna look at.
Bring that fourth finger up,
sliding that fourth finger up.
So it plays along with the open string.
That's a huge thing, all kids of fiddling,
not just blue grass.
But many other kinds of fiddling.
That fu, feeling of joining the next open
string, that happens down here on the D
And down on the D string as well.
Can't happen on the E string.
You can do that, but there's no other
One more time with Old Joe Clark.
Here we go.
With the potatoes, four potatoes.
One two three and.
And of course, Old Joe Clark is,
uses the mixolydian mode.
It's in that mode, in the same way that
a tune like Little Rabbit is in the A
it uses the A major scale Oh Joe Clark is
Remember that melody's just another word
So we have that.
It uses that G note.
And that's what makes it.
