Bury Me Beneath the Willow, Part 1
The bluegrass standard “Bury Me Beneath the Willow” was recorded in 1927 by the Carter Family and has been sung and recorded by numerous musicians since. The version Ricky Skaggs and Tony Rice recorded on their 1980 duet recording has become a standard source for many people. In this lesson, Scott shows you the basic melody and then some ways to embellish it, including adding lead-in runs, fills, and other devices that you can use to embellish the melodies of many songs. In this video, Scott shows you the basic melody, talks about varying the phrasing of the melody, making sure you know how the chords fit the melody, and shows you how to start your solo with a “kickoff” or three-beat intro lick.
