Dixie Hoedown
 

The bluegrass jam favorite “Dixie Hoedown” comes from mandolin great Jesse McReynolds and has been recorded by numerous people, including Jerry Douglas, David Grisman, Matt Flinner, and many others. But nobody really plays the B part the same way. The version you’ll learn here is based on the way Grisman, Jesse McReynolds, Ronnie McCoury, and others played it on Bluegrass Mandolin Extravaganza. Joe starts by showing you the A part, phrase by phrase. You’ll also learn the chords to the A part in this video.

Kitchen Girl, Part 1
Kitchen Girl, Part 1
 

The old-time fiddle tune “Kitchen Girl” comes from West Virginia fiddler Henry Reed, and guitarist Bryan Sutton recently recorded a version that has made the tune popular in bluegrass jam circles. The first part is in A Mixolydian and the second part is in A Dorian, so they’re good examples of the differences between those modes. You’ll learn the first part of “Kitchen Girl” in this video.
