Mandolin Mondays #250 w/ Special Guest Chris Thile

Rate this Entry
Well… this just happened. For the 250th installment of #mandolinmondays, we’ve got the one and only Chris Thile here to take us for a spin on this amazing new untitled composition with his Gibson Lloyd Loar F5.



Chris Thile, may just be the most well known mandolin player of all time. From his work with the bands, Nickel Creek, The Punch Brothers, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, and his recent championing of the radio program Live from Here, Chris has taken the mandolin to new places. His incredible facility, imagination, and energy on this instrument is an inspiration to many.

Be sure to check out his upcoming online masterclass series, Music is Life is Music. It’s a 3 part event starting this Sunday that will explore the concepts of Listening, Writing, and Performing music for the benefit of both professional musicians and the average music enthusiast.

    I don't know how I was able to play every note right along with Chris, in unison, the first time through.
    Thank you, Chris, for gorgeous, creative, piece and for doing Mandolin Monday!

    How about “Couch surfing on the event horizon”?

    What pick are you using?

    "The 10 Fret Stretch", or "Have Fun Transposing This to Am".

    Thanks Mr. Thile, keep them coming.

    Oh yeah! Beautiful composition and playing. I vote for Brian's "Couch surfing on the event horizon".

    Unlike Cheryl, I did not quite get every note right - if only we had that pick information...

    Heck yeah! I've had the great good luck to see Thile live twice in the past three weeks for outdoor solo shows. The new record should be a treat.
