Help to play along with the fiddle audio track

From ClawThor on 12/9/2021 2:25:37 AM

I just started working with the Clawhammer from Scratch book and I have a question when trying to play along with the fiddle audio track of Spotted Pony.  Do you play the banjo straight way when the fiddle starts playing or do you wait as the  fiddle have a lead in measure?  To me, it's seems that the fiddle plays solo for a measure and then banjo starts to play.

Also does anyone have any tips on how to play along with the fiddle track? I'm finding it difficult to know when to start and how fast to play.

Hi Trevor,
You are correct. I give a 4 count shuffle that sets gives you the ready get set thing. Wait one measure.
Play Nice,
