This simple but really fun old-time tune offers a superb venue for demonstrating how to attack a tune phrase by phrase by using the full tool chest (see the intro in The Sandbridge Dance Tune Book; and see the Techniques video on my web site where I review 20+ techniques/ideas). I also used this tune to nail down the concept of a lead hand and the many possibilities that this hammering facilitates. The tune is widely played in old-time circles (See Rachel Eddy fiddling and singing). I hope you will focus on the melody and backup and learn to see the chord progression. Then explore using some of the ideas that I present. Pick and choose and put it all together however you like. I include an example of some of the many ideas that I might use. This is NOT a script but rather a collection of LOTS of possibilities. The variations include six passes of the A part and four passes of the B part. That should be plenty to keep you busy for a long time!
