Red Haired Boy

Learning how to play a popular jam tune in the key of A.

A fully fledged fiddle tune with kickoff and ending. This one is full of 16th notes, so you will likely need to move the tempo back to half of what you played on Old Joe Clark. Move it up slowly. If you feel out of control or a lot of tension, slow it down until that goes away.

Many of the licks are challenging as well, so utilize the looper to practice them. Apply all you have learned thus far to this tune.
