How do I play the old time American tune Shady Grove?
Shady Grove is written here in the key of B minor. We are going to learn to play the basic melody and the advanced fiddle break will be included on the sheet music. Mandolin, guitar and fiddle part videos as well as a video describing the chord progression are included below along with free sheet music and by ear learning fingering tablature or TAB.
Live lessons and last weeks accompaniment files are loading and will be available shortly.
