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.
|Winder Slide, Part 1|
The old-time fiddle tune “Winder Slide” is a beautiful, quirky melody in the key of D, with an extra measure at the end of the B part. Most people know it from fiddler Rayna Gellert’s version, although Bruce Bruce Molsky and others have recorded it as well. It was originally written and recorded by Ohio fiddler Joe LaRose in 1980, and he later added a second part, which he showed to Rayna. Joe walks you through the first part of “Winder Slide” in this video.
