    “Dooley.” by the Dillards has always been a favorite of mine. I’m a big Andy Griffith fan! Hope you enjoy :)

    John-
    Tomorrow is my birthday and I can’t think of a nicer gift- will get right to work on this. I had to laugh because my Grandmother used to make her own beer and apricot brandy.

    All the best and God Bless you and your family.

    I was in the mood for something different and a little easier, and so I thought to myself…”Dooley”….

    I listened to that first break and looked at the words and figured it was pretty easy…didn’t take me long to get it down.  I decided to play along with John.  Started up the first video and played right along…until we came to the second break.  Great!  Sounds awesome…not so easy.  I stop the video, determined to learn this variation.  I pretty well figured it out and can play it at the 100 speed.  Patted myself on the back.  Went back to the first video to play along with John.  Now, I had the first break….almost had the second break…AND WE COME TO THE 3rd BREAK…for crying out loud!!!  Back to square one!!  This one will take some time.  It’s awesome, and I love the way you throw these in there.  Is it to show you’re still the master?  To challenge us?  To tease us?  Whatever it is, here I go…it will be awhile before I have that 3rd one.  :^D

    Haha Angela! It is fun to throw some variation into the extra breaks just to show some possibilities, even if it isn’t in the lesson. I need to go back and tab those out!

    They are awesome!  And it is really helping my ear, too.

    I’ve been working on this song for a couple months… I play a very simplified version of the first break and now I’m trying to make it sound more exciting (more like the one here :) ) because it’s one of my grandfather’s favorites. But I think it will be a VERY LONG TIME before I’ll sound that good!

    Kaeleigh, I really like the tune, also.  I always loved the Darlings on Andy Griffith.  :)

    I love the 3 variations John throws in.  They show how much you can do and still have the tune structure.
