Mixolydian is a scale mode which is identical to "major" except for the 7th note (referred to as the subtonic), which is a whole step below the tonic/8th note instead of a half-step.
Mixolydian tunes tend to emphasize cadences on the 7th note of the scale, in this case G major.

 Modes, Keys, and Tunings
The mode of a piece is determined by the notes of that piece as laid out in the linear form called a scale.
When you tune to a mode (rather than capoing), the bass string is always in the Mixolydian mode and the middle string is in the Ionian modes because the tonic of the key is on the open string and at the third fret respectively.
An advantage of using the capo method of changing modes is that you can tune the three strings so their modes are compatible and then put the capo on for different compatible modes.
