Learn how to break down popular but challenging songs like "Ride the Wild Turkey" and build your speed, dexterity, and ability to improvise, in these intermediate mandolin lessons.
(energetic mandolin music) - Hi, welcome to course number three, Simplifying Difficult Tunes. In this course, we'll be looking at some more advanced tunes like Chief Sitting in the Rain, and Ride the Wild Turkey, and taking a look at how we can pare those down and actually make them more simple, as a way of giving you some vehicles for beginning to improvise on them.
We'll look at scales using all four fingers, and we'll even be re-harmonizing some traditional, simple melodies. I hope you enjoy this course, and good luck with your mandolin playing.
