Salt Creek
 
The second part of “Salt Creek” moves up into third position on the E string, so Chad starts by giving you advice on shifting into third position, with an exercise to help you practice the shift. Then he walks you through the A part, finishing by giving you an example of how he makes up variations and improvises on the second part of “Salt Creek.”

You’ll learn the B part to “Fisher’s Hornpipe” in this video. Chad plays it through slowly and then takes it apart, phrase by phrase. He also shows you the bowing he likes to use on the B part, which includes a lot of three-note slurs, and a couple of cool slides. He finishes by playing the whole tune through slowly so you can play along.
