Discuss the Banjo lesson: Dixie Doodle

I’ve had many requests to teach the song “Dixie”, but I thought it would be cool to also incorporate a little “Yankee Doodle Dandy” in there as well! The intro and outro of this tune uses some great harmonic techniques to get the “Yankee Doodle” sound, mixed with a killer melodic rendition of the southern anthem. Enjoy this unique arrangement of some American classics!

do you just not include the introductory bum ba da baa like you have on the youtube video and that whole clip about not alienating yankee friends and if so why not?

I trimmed a lot of them down to make it easier for folks to hear what I’m going to teach them. Don’t worry, though…I’m adding the quips back in on my newer lessons :wink:
