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.

The traditional fiddle tune “Fisher’s Hornpipe” has been played and recorded by countless people, including, perhaps most notably for mandolin players, Chris Thile and Mike Marshall on their Into the Cauldron album. In addition to teaching Chris and Mike’s version of the melody of “Fisher’s Hornpipe” in this lesson, Joe also shows you how to come up with a harmony part for “Fisher’s Hornpipe” and tunes like it. But, of course, first you have to learn the melody, starting with the A part.
