Silver Bells (Western swing tune)
This is an online fiddle lesson for the Western swing tune “Silver Bells.” This tune is compliments of BGD member Steve Srader. Thank you Steve! See the full lesson here: Silver Bells
hey john on the lesson list you have two silver bells one needs to be labeled western.
Thanks Steve! I needed to differentiate it from the Christmas song. 🙂
Got it down loaded starting it tomorrow , perfect !
Good luck with it! Let me know if you hit any snags.
Its great, I can go through it slowly from beginning to end , Time and getting it in my memory bank is all I need . With your lessons no one can fail , as long as they are willing to do the work . I cannot say enough good about all your lessons .
Thanks for adding Silver Bells (western version) to your lessons. Have always loved it and seem to recall whistling it decades ago. Have to learn what a couple symbols are on the printed sheet but will take a stab at it. Am visiting a daughter deep in the heart of Texas at the moment expect to be halfway home to Minnesota a week from now. My fiddle has been a fine traveling companion but dislikes the the climate changes and demands frequent retuning.
There is one symbol I am not sure about its the zero with cross hairs ? Its at the end of 15 and again at the beginning of 38 above the tablature ?
Thanks fiddlewood now I am enlightened , Thanks !
The cross haired zero mystified me too. Not too sure how to handle it yet but nice to know that much.
At the end of measure 15 after you have been through the song repeats and your ready to end the song you drop to measure 38 and its the ending .Thanks again fiddlewood !
Yes, thanks! I added that in at the last minute. Many people play AB AB A then end the song after the A part. From an “energy” standpoint, it does make more sense to end on the A part than the B part.
