Here's
one of the classic fiddle tunes which gets
a lot of play,
especially if you're into kind of a
rambunctious mood.
It's called Back Up and Push.
It's the key of C.
We're using it as a sort of a fourth
finger workout
because as we're pushing up.
[SOUND].
Up to that E.
And it's also a good chance to workout on
your shuffling.
Your.
Your double shuffle because we're doing
[MUSIC]
Right?
It's that same double shuffle pattern.
[MUSIC]
And then reset after two bars of that.
So it sounds, well you'll hear it.
But again, good to practice it slow.
[MUSIC]
Back and forth between
[MUSIC]
F.
[MUSIC]
C.
[MUSIC]
and G
[MUSIC]
So its four, one, five, back to one and
so forth.
So here's Back Up And Push.
[SOUND].
It starts right in with that.
So let's get set here.
[MUSIC]
Right?
Okay.
One, two, three.
