    That was fun.
    Is it my imagination or was there a Turkey in the Straw on the way to Ventura?

    One of my favorite ( and most adept) contemporary acoustic guitar players, saw him a few times with Frank, of course now Chris is emerging as a double threat and I hope to see some double mando pieces from Dirty Kitchen! Awesome tone on that Kimble!

    enjoyed this immensely. i used to go the Greg Boyds site when i first started just to watch/hear Chad play tunes. he always has this smooth unrushed playing style and it pours out tone no matter what brand mandolin he has in his hands.

    This is great. We saw Kentucky Sky at Toledo Wa last summer. He’s such a fine player, clean and tasty.

    Great tune. JKW is one cool customer. Just downloaded If Not Now, Who and will listen on the drive home today. As always, thanks David. MM is a truly great service to the mandolin community.

    I came to the forum this morning mainly to look at what people had to say about mandolin gig bags when I saw the link to Enda's video. He recently offered an equally excellent banjo version of Banish Misfortune over at the Facebook Banjoheads page.
    Thanks, Enda, for giving so much to enthusiasts of our favorite instruments, and to the appreciation of trad music in general.

    Impressive! Beautifully played.

    Absolutely beautiful!! Thank you, Caterina, for sharing and for all you do to promote the mandolin community!

    And, I don't say it often enough, thank you, David, for organizing and producing Mandolin Mondays every week and for all you do to promote the mandolin community!

    Absolutely beautiful playing, an adaptation of a violin piece. Wonderful!

    Played with style and character. Great control of the instrument surely 'rubs off' on her students. We are blessed with such fine teachers.

    Jaw droppingly beautiful piece, performance and vista! Great way to start the morning.

    Good tune Anthony Howell. I like it. Don't you have a new CD out?
  32. BrianWilliam's Avatar
    Nice pickin’ Anthony!

    Is “ bluegmulti-instrumentalist” an intentional portmanteau?

    Fine picking on a nicely written tune, and a great tribute to Mark. Thanks for sharing the tune and the story with us.

    Hello everybody, thank's a lot for your comments. A this time there is no score, so I will try not to forget it...
  41. Nick Royal's Avatar
    I liked it a lot too! Starts out simple and gets more complex, it seemed to my ears.
    And I too would like to see the score.
  42. Todd Bowman's Avatar
    A beautiful composition and playing to match!! Thank you, Pascal, for sharing!

    Beautiful, intriguing. Is the music available?
  44. JonDoug's Avatar
    That's a perfect tune for the foggy Monday morning where I'm at! Interesting idea to substitute maple wood for the typical ebony bridge base on your Big Mon--I'm sure that adds to the overall tone you achieve!

    The shredding is inspiring, but I'm curious why people are still playing Dixie-themed songs in the 2020s. perhaps the way Jake is transforming the tune...changing it from a peppy marching-band anthem to a much more complex and dissonant thing.... speaks to the myth vs reality of Dixie. An updated approach to an outdated tune

    Yeah, great playing and what seems like an endless stream of ideas. His right hand always amazes me.
  50. Alfons's Avatar
    Oh Yeah! Right and left are both working it out there.
    I had that bluegrass album on continuous repeat all the way from Florida back to Chicago - amazing stuff. Really enjoying the jazz offerings as well. Keep up the great work!
