Subject: Good yodeling songs for a yodel workshop
From: GUEST,Ari
Date: 04 Feb 19 - 12:05 PM

I'm looking for a good yodeling song or two to teach in a yodeling workshop. I've been teaching workshops for years, but I've been using the same songs, and I want to add some variety.

Things I'm looking for in a song:
-Something fun to sing and listen to.
-Short verses so there's not too much delay between yodels
-Yodels that are simple enough to teach beginners, or can be simplified.

So far I've been using "Old Chisolm Trail" with a simple yodel between each verse, and a simplified yodel on Kenny Robert's "Just a Yodel for Me", if that gives you a sense of some songs that work well.

Thanks!

Maggie Gee does a song which allows the audience to join in the chorus and unwittingly Yodel.
Older Ladies, Older Ladies, Older Ladies

There are easy yodels and advanced yodels, and most of the recordings we hear are advanced yodels.

I do an easy yodel from a folksong I learned in elementary school. One is pretty well-known. Maybe you know it.

OH, I go to Peter's fountain, and what do I hear?
From the misty swamp far-away, cuckoo calling so clear.

Hy ly rah.

Hol di ra, hol di ra, hol di ra cuckoo [3 times]
Hol di ra, hy ly rah o!

2. "Tween Easter and Whitsuntide all the snow melts away.
Then my girl goes and marries, leaving me in dismay.
Repeat yodel
==============
On that yodel, I moved the high note to the 2nd 'di'. It sounds more Swiss. The last hy ly rah glides down, doesn't step down.

Whitsuntide is Pentecost.

Night Rider's Lament is the one I do that contains a yodel... in the chorus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhQUiYKfTzQ

Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer do one that is a tutorial of sorts..
i can not find it right now but i think it has a part in it called little old lady who? it contains a glottal stop exercise....good for first time yodellers....it is probably called the Yodel Lesson... might be on their kids' album...it might be on "Grandma Slid Down the Mountain"

That's a great suggestion, Open Mike. I listened to the song on YouTube, and I like it.

Isn't it irritating when people ask for help and don't come back for the answers?

I agree Sandman , but Bill Haley was a guy who had the ability to move on as music changed and/or progressed.

Thanks so much for the suggestions everyone, I had a great time listening to them! I think I'll aim for a Bill Haley song for a workshop soon. What a yodeler!
