let's play Boil Them Cabbage one more
time, but this time,
it's gonna be cross-picking.
And we're gonna use the famous Jesse
McReynolds pattern for this,
which is 3rd string down [SOUND] 1st
string up, [SOUND] 2nd string up [SOUND].
So it's down, up, up, down, up, up, and
then down, up.
3, 1, 2, 3, 1,2, 3, 1.
It's an 8 note pattern, which fills up a,
a, a bar of 2-4.
1 and 2, 1, 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and thank
you, that's easy for me.
1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 and 3 and
down up, up down up, up down up down up,
up down up, up, down up or 3, 1, 2, 3, 1,
2, 3, 1, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3.
Make sure your pick is going through both
of the strings.
And we're gonna do Boil them Cabbage down,
which as you know, is a really simple
I hope you've already learned the original
I would suggest you learn this one first,
so you, the melody is really solid.
then the cross picking would be a
Okay, let's try that.
So the whole melody happens, 11th fret on
the 3rd string,
and the E and A strings are ringing open.
So you set your pattern, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2,
1 and then you shift to a D chord which is
12 and, and 8, and
you're letting the E string ring open.
wanted to you could do it with the open A
So it's 12, O, O.
Let's do it that way first.
So, it's 11, O, O.
12, O, O.
11, O, O.
What the heck?
Let's do the, the, when it gets to the E
chord we're gonna let the A-string ring
open also, seve, eight.
This will really give you a feeling for
And it's the most simple right hand.
So the pattern-
on the one note,
then the 12th fret do the pattern again.
11th fret do the pattern again.
8th fret do the pattern again.
The 9th fret, I'm sorry.
Now here's where it changes, 11, 9, 9.
So the 11 is just one of the patterns, 3,
2, then the 9 is 3, 1, 2, 3, 1.
So it's 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1 and then
the 7th fret for the whole pattern.
Okay, one more time,
11, 12, full pattern, 11, full pattern, 9,
full pattern, 11, full pattern, 12, full
here's where it changes
So you're keeping the pattern in the right
hand, but you're shifting notes in the
11, 9, 9, 7, 7, 7, 11, 9, 9, 7.
Just practice that as a, tricky little
shifting your left hand in the middle of
of the cross picking pattern.
So now we're gonna add a couple of notes
When we get to the D chord-
We're gonna add the 9th
fret with the 12th fret, and still let the
E string ring open.
Then we go back to the 11th with open,
Now here instead of just playing this with
the open A,
we're gonna play the threaded D with it.
So it's 9, 5, O, and that, that's,
that 5th thread is the, is the flat 7 of
the E chord, so
it gives you a little of that dominant
Back to the open, with 11th fret, and
back to this D-chord, 12 and, 12 and 9.
And we'll end it the same way.
Then we did the other one.
it's just adding a couple of notes to vary
Oh, there's a nice ending.
11, when we get to this 9, we're gonna add
the 7, the 5th fret with it.
And then we're gonna end it with
7 and 4, the, the A chord, all right?
Hope this helps, give your bile and
cabbage a little variety.
