Boil Them Cabbage Down
This tune is usually played by fiddle and mandolin players in the key of A. Banjo pickers and guitar players usually play it using G positions with a capo at the 2nd fret. See capo instructions page.
Boil Them Cabbage Down is often one of the first tunes learned by beginning fiddlers, mandolinists and banjo pickers since it is such a simple tune. Most people play this as an instrumental but it has some pretty funny lyrics and I wish more people would sing it. See the Bluegrass Fakebook information below.
