Here's a version of the melody of man of
constant sorrow and you gonna get a lot of
requests for this tune.
And its good to know it.
Its a great piece of music.
One of the interesting things about this
tune it's got that extra beat
at the beginning, and if you sing it, you
hear that beat.
You go.
that's where it changes to the folk chord.
So, it's good to be able to sing it a
little bit using your utility voice
to be able to feel that change.
And, it's also good to have it very clear
in your mind where you're
gonna make that change, and be able to cue
the band by a look, or
some kind of motion of the instrument.
So you not only have to have the melody
together, but you have to have your.
Movement together,
so this is a very interesting tune on a
lot of different levels.
So we're gonna do this in G.
And here we go.
One, two, three.
