Some Old Day
 
This great Flatt and Scruggs song was recorded by JD Crowe and the New South on their classic self-titled album, with Tony Rice singing lead. It's a great example of a medium tempo bluegrass song played with a country swing feel. You'll learn a strum pattern that helps accent the swing feel, as well as some bass runs to use at the ends of phrases. Scott plays the song in D and looks at some different ways to finger the A and A7 chords. Finally, he sings the whole song through so you can play along with him.

Baby, Now That I’ve Found You, Part 1
 
Alison Krauss had a hit with the ‘60s pop song “Baby, Now That I’ve Found You,” which is also the title of her Grammy-winning 1995 collection. It uses some sus2 and add9 chords that come in handy when playing more contemporary bluegrass and country songs, and has a great arpeggiated intro with a descending bass line. Scott starts by showing you how to play the intro, which uses some chords you’ll use a lot in the song, including Dus2, Cadd9, G6/B and Gm6/Bb. He also explains what those chord names mean, and then shows you how to turn the intro’s arpeggiated single-note pattern into the strum you’ll use to play the rest of the song. You’ll also learn the rest of the chords to the chorus (E7, Gsus2, and Asus2) in this video, and Scott finishes by playing the intro and chorus through, so you can play along with him.
