“Pretty Little Girl” is one of those tunes that I’m quite certain I’ve played a time or two at jams, but hadn’t heard outside of that context. And had it not been for member Jim H. requesting it, I may never have added it into my permanent stable.
(RELATED: Breakthrough Banjo members can now request songs to be added to the clawhammer song library. Click here for more information about the course.)
There’s a handful of half-length fiddle tunes like this one that are super catchy, easy to pick up, and as a result make for excellent jamboosters.
It’s a bite size, snack-able morsel of a tune. While it may be short in stature, I think you’ll find it surprisingly hard to stop playing once it’s under your fingers!
(Note: I’ve just now created a group on Facebook for posting and discussing all things related to the clawhammer tune and song of the week series. If you’re interested, click here to check it out and join the group.)
