8.4 A and B Sections Together! video

Tunefox Banjo Lesson #8

Let's put the pieces together and get cookin' with your first song - Cripple Creek!

Now it's up to you to take the parts you've been practicing and piece them together to form a cohesive song. Remember that you repeat both sections once and the form is AABB. Not all songs have this form, but it is a popular one in the bluegrass genre for instrumental tunes.

Notice the repeat signs at the end of measures 2 and 4. These look like vertical lines with two dots to the left of them and they are there to let you know to go back to the beginning of the song. When you repeat once, you won't repeat again unless otherwise notated.
