This is a classic fiddle tune in the key of D that is a lot of fun to play. I built it very basic so beginner players could not only learn a version, but also learn to fill in the melody with 8th notes. Enjoy!
Great lesson. I am enjoying it. I am an experienced player in Celtic but just learning in old time and bluegrass Thanks. Enjoying the course. Not my favorite genre, but I have to get along with others !! LOL

Stop by often now you know we are here!
Fun song! I am brand new to the mandolin, and I keep on messing up with the pick direction, especially when I switch strings or when they throw a quarter note into a series of eighth notes. I’m trying to be aware of it so I don’t develop bad habits, but it sure is hard!

Hang in there! You’re thinking about it in the right way.
It gets easier as you get more used to it.
Pull up a chair and stay awhile…
… and come back often!
