I'd like to end this discussion
of the Dorian mode by playing
another great Irish song.
It's called The Star of the County Down,
and
I recorded this with The Fleck Tones
in a totally different style.
And with a great folk
singer named Jim Post.
So I've learned it in different ways but
this is the basic melody,
it's in four four.
[MUSIC]
And
it repeats.
[MUSIC]
And
I threw a few
little Irish
ornaments in
there, and
I played a few
intervals and
chords.
The Irish ornaments
[MUSIC].
Just a quick little flip to the next
[MUSIC],
it's not hard to do.
You can move the harmonica
[MUSIC]
or move your mouth
[MUSIC]
or a combination of both.
