The best video to follow along and review the steps with:
We got until about 1:34 in this class — and don’t worry, we’ll go over that last sequence just a little bit more, since we only covered it quickly in class.
The four most common songs for Tranky Doo Performances:
- “Jump Session” by Slim and Slam (the slowest of the songs, and thus the song we’ve been using)

- “Dipsy Doodle” by Ella Fitzgerald (the song used in the Spirit Moves)
- “Tia Juana” by Bud Freeman (I have no trivia about this one)
And finally, another plug for The Most Awesome Spreadsheet Ever (for learning the Tranky Doo, at least!). Also known as the spreadsheet where I geeked out over the intersection between the Tranky Doo and Excel for a couple hours.
You guys did really great tonight, and I can’t wait for next week!
