In Part 2 of this lesson, Mike Marshall teaches the classic tune Old Joe Clark. Mike breaks the song down bar by bar and explains the chords used and the melody line for the song.
- Okay now we'll move on to that slightly…more fancy version of Old Joe Clark…with a few more notes added in variation two,…but we're gonna keep the metronome right there at 54.…Play along with me here.…(metronome)…(mandolin music)…Here comes the slide.…
