here's a tune that uses groups of three
and groups of five, but it's in two.
So we have this thing where the, the, the,
the notes are going to sort of cross over
the bar line, the phrases are gonna cross.
This is nothing new for bluegrass.
Banjo players do this all the time.
They're always going.
One, two, one, two, three, four.
groups of three against a two beat.
We can do this, too.
You could try this just going,
Just playing E and G against the open A.
Each group of three is going to
be a different bow direction.
So, you're going to start with down, up,
down, and then up, down, up, and
then we're back to normal.
Down, up, down.
You can do it up here.
And down here
You get a different kind of feeling in
the bow, but yeah, kinda bring that back.
You can play two groups of three.
Things like that to kinda get yourself

So here is this tune.
It's called The Vineyard Cat, and it's
gotta a lot of this stuff.
And in the middle, there is gonna be even
more funny groups.
Groups of five, right?
So, all kinds of funny little groups and
there'll be a downloadable PDF of this in
case you wanna see it.
Sometimes it's better to be able to see
these notes go by.
Also, since they're in funny syncopation.
You can see where the one actually falls.
So, Vineyard Cat, here we go.
One, two, three, and.
