Squirrel Hunters - Backup

  • Backup

This is a great backup arrangement of Squirrel Hunters for a fiddle. We've got up the neck playing for the A part. Our note choice focuses in on the 1st and 5th chordal tones, that way we are in line with the modal sound. Since the A part melody is usually played in the lower register of the fiddle, the up the neck backup provides good contrast, and stays out of the way. Both the lead, and the backup in this arrangement flip-flops in the B part.
