Dixie Hoedown

Dixie Hoedown

This tune is part of the following collections:
 Bluegrass Collection

I transcribed this tune from the playing of Jim and Jesse McReynolds on the American bluegrass CD Mandolin Extravaganza, which was put together by David Grisman and features some of America's greatest mandolinists. Dixie Hoedown is a good-going bluegrass tune with some nice double-stopping in the B part. I don’t think it's tremendously difficult, so it may be a good opportunity to practise your pick direction.

This set is part of my Bluegrass collection of tunes; for others, check out the Bluegrass Collection Index.
