[MUSIC]
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
calisthenics.
So, what we have is
[MUSIC]
Forth finger's here playing unison with A.
[MUSIC]
And then we have all this stuff going on.
[MUSIC]
So, that fourth finger just stays there
[MUSIC]
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
here.
So, the first part is.
[MUSIC]
Right?
Do that one more time
[MUSIC]
And I'm, course i'm not playing,
the drone A, so you can hear what's going
on.
And then, second part of that
[MUSIC]
So, second part again, G and.
[MUSIC]
So, that whole thing fits together.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
One more time, slowly breaking up into
sections.
[MUSIC]
So, you can rewind that as many times as
you can stand put those sections together
and
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.
[MUSIC]
We'll play it in a tempo.
[MUSIC]
One, two, Sally Goodin.
