Seneca Square Dance, Part 1: G Major Scale and A Part Melody
You’ve learned fiddle tunes in the keys of D and A, and now you’re ready to learn one in the key of G. “Seneca Square Dance” is an old-time dance tune with a simple, pretty melody that sounds great played at a medium tempo. If you haven’t played many tunes in the key of G, it’s good to review the G major scale, which Sharon does here, showing you the scale in open position as well as a scale with no open strings that is a good exercise for your pinky. Then Sharon plays the A part of “Seneca Square Dance” through and takes it apart phrase by phrase, giving you time to play each phrase, and then the whole A part, along with her.
