January – March 2024 Tunes

January: Breakdown – Tom & Jerry (A)
Waltz – Our Waltz (D)
March: Tune of Choice
I Don’t Love Nobody (in C)

Texas-style fiddle tunes are my heart and soul. With a rich history, driving rhythm, and beautiful longbow technique, they make the fiddle sound perfectly beautiful. 

The Texas Style Tunes webinar has become one of my absolute favorite classes to teach. Each month we rotate between learning a breakdown, a waltz, or a tune of choice. These are all tunes suitable for fiddle contests.

Learn the tune step-by-step, by ear, over the course of two class times. The sheet music and a guitar back-up track are included – but I highly recommend learning the song by ear along with me. After two consecutive classes, you’ll get a week off to solidify, smooth out, and memorize the fiddle tune; In the third class, you’ll perform your rendition, and I’ll offer individual feedback on how to sound your best and how to personalize the tune.

Breakdown: Tom & Jerry
Key: A
Dates: January 3, 10, 24

One of the oldest breakdowns in the Texas fiddle repertoire, Tom & Jerry is one of the Top 10 most popular breakdowns. You must know this tune. It’s in the key of A and in the family of A tunes like Brilliancy, Dusty Miller, and Sally Goodin’. This is the first of these type of tunes that I teach. An AA BB tune, we’ll learn a 10-part version. Drawing upon parts from Georgia Slim, Terry Morris, Major Franklin, and Tommy Jackson — you’ll get to learn a one-of-a-kind version of Tom & Jerry.

Waltz: Our Waltz
Key: D
Dates: February 7, 14, 28

This masterpiece of a waltz was written by Randy Howard (who also wrote Golden Fiddle Waltz). In the key of D, the double stops and chord progression are truly beautiful. Randy recorded this track on his album, Survival of the Fiddlest. I guess I’m on Randy Howard waltz kick. I’ll teach a single note and double stop version and you can enjoy making it your own.

Tne of Choice: I Don’t Love Nobody (in C)
Key: C
Dates: March 6, 13, 27

in Session 1 and Session 2 of Fiddle School, I teach I Don’t Love Nobody in the key of A. Now it’s time to learn it in the key of C. I really think of I Don’t Love Nobody in C as a different tune — with remnants of the key of A melody. In the key of C, we can get more bluesy and chromatic. here’s a second part in the key of A minor, and we’ll shift into 2nd and 3rd position. With all kinds of fun tricks, this tune is so much fun!
