Tom & Jerry
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.
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.
I Don’t Love Nobody (in 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!
