Learn a fiddle tune: Old Dangerfield with backup tracks

This is for anyone wanting to learn how to play Old Dangerfield, by Bill Monroe. Old Dangerfield is a modal instrumental. When I tried to look up info on this song, all I turned up was lots of speculation, but it seems like most people think the song is named after Bill Monroe’s dog.

Ok so this video is of Mike Block and Darol Anger playing this song, and while this video is nothing but awesome, it’s probably not  a video to learn this song from. So if you do find a good one, please leave it in the comments and I’ll add it:
