This is an online fiddle lesson for the country song “Don’t Be Angry.” The song was written by Wade Jackson but performed by his brother, Stonewall Jackson. This tune is compliments of BGD member Steve Srader. Thank you, Steve, for this great country tune. Don’t Be Angry
Thanks John , Love what you did for this tune for me . I knew in my heart it would be a pretty violin tune to play and I am not disappointed . You did a great job singing it too . I like all three versions !
Wow…that’s got a great sound! Great job, John! Beautiful song made even more beautiful. The song is very nice and the fiddle breaks are awesome. Steve, thanks for bringing this one to the light of day…
Glad you like it! There are so many great old country tunes (See Nancy’s list!) that are falling by the wayside. Stonewall Jackson seemed to always sing positive songs. I can remember loving “Waterloo” when I was a kid.
Little Bride has loved this song for decades! She silently applauds when I practice it and that makes me wonder if I haven’t said that to her often enough? Now when either one of us messes things up a bit, we gently sing “Don’t be Angry” to each other and that occurs fairly frequently too.
Kneeling isn’t too much of problem for me. however, rising back up has been something of a problem so always find a place with a prop before bending the knees. Having a big dog has been helpful to me as she’ll come and patiently stand while I use her to get up. Scratching her ears is the payback so that’s cheap enough. Cats? Not so handy!
