June Apple
 
In this lesson, Chad teaches you the popular old-time tune "June Apple," which is in the key of A Mixolydian. Mixolydian means that the seventh in the major scale (in this case, G#) is lowered a half step (to G). In the first part of the lesson, Chad teaches the A part of "June Apple" phrase by phrase and also shows you the "Nashville shuffle" bowing pattern, which works well on the A part of this tune.

Pretty Little Dog
 
“Pretty Little Dog” is a pretty little A modal tune that comes from West Virginia fiddler Lee Triplett, and is now played by Celtic fiddlers, old-time fiddlers, and others. Chad shows it to you slowly, phrase by phrase, giving you a chance to play the tune along with him as you learn it. The B part of “Pretty Little Dog” has only one phrase that’s different from the A part: the first phrase. So you’ll learn the B part quickly. “Pretty Little Dog” also sounds good in the lower octave, and Chad suggests you try to figure this out on your own, but gives you the starting notes. Then Chad shows you how to add some fiddle “layers” like double stringing, slides, and hammer-ons.
