All right.
We're gonna revisit the tune Sally Goodin.
This tune has been played so many
different ways.
And we're gonna do a little fourth finger
workout here
on the A part of Sally Goodin.
This is interesting because it's a forth
finger workout where the forth finger
doesn't do a lot, but it does hold down a
drone note while
the other fingers go through their
So, what we have is
Forth finger's here playing unison with A.
And then we have all this stuff going on.
So, that fourth finger just stays there
For a while,
while all this other stuff going on.
I'm gonna quickly go through
this A part section by section because
it's very Byzantine.
Pretty complicated but it is the same
pretty much every time.
This comes from the Texas style, and
it's become a real standardized version
So, the first part is.
Do that one more time
And I'm, course i'm not playing,
the drone A, so you can hear what's going
And then, second part of that
So, second part again, G and.
So, that whole thing fits together.
One, two, three, four.
One more time, slowly breaking up into
So, you can rewind that as many times as
you can stand put those sections together
you'll have a very beautiful kind of
weaving woving kind of A part,
with a very interesting kind of fourth
finger technique on that,
and we'll play this with the B part.
Now, with a little backing track.
We'll play it in a tempo.
One, two, Sally Goodin.
