In this video, I will show you how to play the chords and backup rhythm for the old-time fiddle tune "Bill Cheatham" on the mandolin. This fiddle tune is a standard jam tune, and you will find it in bluegrass, old-time, and Irish music sessions. 

We use typical chop chord voicings for the following chords, A-major, D-major, and E-major. I will also give you some insights into the different fingerings for some of the chords.
