Fiddle Tune Backup, Part 2: Old-Time Style
In this example of old-time style fiddle-tune backup, Scott plays “Sally Gooden” without a capo, using open A chord shapes. Playing without a capo allows you to use the low E in your alternating bass pattern, and is good to use when you don’t have a bass player, so you can really emphasize the lowest bass notes and get a solid alternating bass pattern going. Scott shows you a couple different ways to finger an open A chord, which are good to know when you’re holding one chord for a long time. You’ll also learn a couple of old-time-style bass runs that use the low E string.
