"Wheel Hoss" by Jake Jolliff, Mike Barnett-             a Reharmonization

  Here's a reharmonization of the A section of "Wheel Hoss"- a bluegrass standard. It uses a lot of interesting techniques including chromaticism, wide intervallic leaps, and mutually exclusive triads (a John McGann term). Although these are quite common terms in the jazz lexicon, it's interesting to see these put into the context of a Kenny Baker/Bill Monroe tune. Good luck! Make sure to use common sense fingerings for position shifts.
