Bill Monroe’s instrumental tune “Cheyenne” has been recorded by many people, but is probably best known from Kenny Baker’s classic recording on Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe. Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Joe K. Walsh teaches it in his Advancing Mandolinist course and he enlisted his Mr. Sun bandmate, guitarist Grant Gordy, to help him run it down in the studio.

That mando style is exactly the kind I enjoy and try to emulate. It's like a Sam Bush plays Bill Monroe type of rhythmic drive.

A great mandolin duet of Sarah Jarosz’s original tune, recorded live at the Marshall Mandolin Summit.
