We have oats,  rye,  rye grass,  and wheat mixed into a food plot/cover crop.  The heavy rains of late had beaten patches of this to the ground so now in places we have 3 to 4 foot tall grass laying down.  I am new to the scythe so I am having a hard time with these sections of grass.  As long as the grass is standing I am gold.  Any suggestions to make mowing grass that is laying down easier? I am using a brush blade if that matters.

Use a blade with a fine point, and hold the scythe so that the edge points upwards. With the growth laying away from you, snake the toe of the blade under the stalks and use it to guide them into the heel of the blade, which should neatly clip them off.
