This New England contra dance chestnut offers a super demonstration to do the following: (1) “see” the chord progression in the structure of the tune – and to use arpeggio patterns to play it. (2) Beyond the simple melody, I walk you through how to attack a tune phrase by phrase and use ideas from my tool chest (see the intro in The Sandbridge Dance Tune Book and see the techniques video on my web site where I review 20+ techniques/ideas). (3) Nail down the concept of a lead hand and some of the many possibilities that this hammering facilitates. Learn the melody and harmony & backup – see the chord progression - AND then explore using some of the ideas that I presented. Put it all together however you like! Recorded on Horizons (1993)
