    I'm pretty sure Watson Blues is in the Tabledit files. It's also the 'tune of the week' right now on Co-Mando.

    OKMike, that link brought up another Gerry Hundt vid that I really enjoyed, The Union Meetin'. Reminded me of a Piedmont ragtime blues style a lot.



    Delving further into YouTube will bring up some of Mundt's video lessons which probably parallel or mirror Jim Richter's.

    I'd started another string which duplicated what Amandlyn had started here so I've deleted the other string and moved it here. My apologies for any confusion I've created. Obviously my mind is on vacation and my fingers are working overtime! - Joe

    AZStu thought it'd be worthwhile having a subtopic of blues mandolin artists and recordings. I ran across a listing of YouTube blues vids in one of the Message Board posts and thought I'd add it here. Some of you have probably seen this. Kudos to Howard33 for compiling and posting the following:

    This is a sampling of Mandolin Blues that I have put together from YouTube offerings. I have added the names of Mandocafe members where I am aware of their membership. While this is may look like a long list, this is just a portion of what is available for Blues mandolin on YouTube. I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I do.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUAgFvfoRY0 - long and rambling but goofy fun before they start. Geoff Muldaur has some strange open tuning for this song only - I think the A or E strings are tuned in a major third. Found that out when he borrowed my banjolin in a workshop at Winnipeg FF 1991 (my jug band opened for The Jug Band, then we played a few tunes together), then I picked it up for the following jam. Eric Weissberg, their utility man for the day, said, "Oh, that's his Minglewood tuning. Here, I'll tune it back," and did so, in half a minute, by ear! And I never had to tune it again!

    Dave Specter, a brilliant guitarist out of Chicago, has been one of my modern favorites for the last 15 years. This is one of his tunes from the album Blueplicity, which he did with the great Tad Robinson (who I've had the privilege of performing with on occasion).

    Thanks, Jim. I downloaded that track from I-tunes (card bought from supermarket). And I see they have a whole set of his albums at the local media lending library (which I can also buy and download from the media library, apparently). The recording sounds very promising. Shame he doesn't sing on his albums. And when is your album due out, Jim?

    Hokum Blues

    Kieth Cary on cello, Meridith Axlerod on guitar and Jim Foss on resonater mandolin. Keith Cary builds and sells the reaonater mandolin Jim Foss is playing. He calls it a Commodium as it is made from a hospital bed pan as a resonating chamber. A very creative guy.

    Merideth Axlerod has some really great stuff on YouTube under he own name with other fine old time and blues folks.

    There may, or may not be mandolin on this blues site, but if there isn't there should be. Archie Edwards was a well thought of blues guitar player and composer who operated a barber shop in Washington, DC. It became a legendary center for blues players who jammed there during slow hours and evenings. After he died the blues folks continued to use the barber shop as a blues center. The area was eventually gentrified, the barbershop closed and the jam was moved to a municipal space. But there are some good videos on this site taken at the barber shop and later the new site. It is the kind of space and environment most of us would like to have access to... intimate and supportive of the blues.

    This site gets suprisingly few hits for some reason, but I think there is good stuff there.

    Another small string band band is called "The Otis Brothers". They are collectors early blues recordings and instruments and historians of early blues' Pat Conte and Bob Guida had developed a New York City and surrounding area reputation. Bob Guida died a year or so ago. Conte plays some fine mandolin in this video.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKWEeFfNcvg

    Hope you enjoy their work. Conte proves that a mandolin player can chew a matchstick and play the mandolin at the same time.

    Amandalyn...

    You were looking for some really good female blues mando players... Check out this video of Andra Faye playing alongside Rich Delgrosso. She used to be (or still is?) with SAFFIRE The Uppity Blues Women. Super blues mandolin in my opinion... She also plays guitar and I believe bass fiddle. I can't think of anyone who can beat her as a blues mandolin player. She has fine stage presence as well. I wish the photography was a little better.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Bill Foss on mandolin and Merdeth Axelerod on guitar

    HOKUM BLUES

    Bill Foss is, in my opinion, a remarkable mandolin player. I mention this video because I am so impressed with the variety seen in his picking technique... Oh heck... I admit it... I think Merideth Axelerod is really cute... But Foss is a mighty fine musician too... and I think they make great music together. I've suggested this tune in another thread with Foss playing resonater mando but this video shows his fingerwork better.

    Rene,

    If that is not a show piece... Please tell me what is!

    To me.... that is the essence of blues. Yes it is basic and without razzledazzle but its simplicity is its merit. That is one I am going to be studying. Also thank you for the up close view of both hands. I think there is a lot to learn from in this video.

    One of my most painful musical experiences is to hear the high school (or college) orchestra leader announce "and now you're about to hear our thirty piece orchestra play "Something or other Blues". At that point I have an uncontrollable urge to find the men's room.

    Blues Mandolin Instrument Sampler

    Bottleneck John shows us a variety of mandolins with Lars Astrand demonstrating their sound in blues tunes. Quite interesting if you are interested in blues mandolin instrument options. The resonater mandolins shown are Johnsons, made in China for an american company. They are low priced "copies" of old National resonaters. Certainly these are not for every blues lover... but they offer an interesting alternative sound.

    Southern White Blues Tradition

    Here's another one which may not fit our focus completely... but I find it a fascinating off-shoot of traditional black oriented blues as we know it. I used to hear hillbilly blues on the radio coming out of the South as a kid back in the 50s(?) but rejected it because it didn't meet my definition of the "blues". Here's a guy, bayrum78, who takes it seriously and recreates some of the southern white blues artists and tradition. He is playing a cello banjo which I think is a fairly rare banjo. I often accompany his videos on a mandolin or mandolin banjo. Hope you enjoy this.

    Rococo blues!?!?!?

    Didn't know there was such a thing,,, but would love to hear/see more. A very iteresting approach to the blues. Quite unique in my opinion and not fitting comfortably into my definition,,, but methiinks that makes it more interesting.
