Angeline the Baker, Part 1

From: Beginning Mandolin by Sharon Gilchrist

Sponsored By

The fiddle tune “Angeline the Baker” is a must-know tune for all roots music instrumentalists. Sharon teaches it here note-for-note and phrase-by-phrase. “Angeline the Baker” is in the key of D, and Sharon starts by reviewing the D major scale. She also talks about marking the time with your downstrokes, even if there’s a rest on that downstroke (sometimes called a “ghost stroke”), which will help you maintain a steady tempo. Sharon plays each phrase of the A part numerous times, so you can practice playing each phrase with her until you really get it down and are ready to put all four phrases together for the entire A part.
