    Re: Nick's Front Porch Mandolin

    This is another newer tune. I'm actually still working on it a bit. It's got a few tricky spots in it. This is the best version I have from my practice sessions:

    Re: Nick's Front Porch Mandolin

    This is a relatively recent tune that I haven't had the chance to record with anyone. It's a bit odd in that the first bar has seven beats, the rest of the tune is in 4/4.

    Re: Nick's Front Porch Mandolin

    Here's one of mine in a medley with a couple of Grisman tunes off the "King Of The Gypsies" soundtrack. The solo by the vaguely guitar-like instrument is a vintage Gibson tenor lute.

    Best musical experience ever. I met Dan and Valerie and saw several other mando cases with Cafe stickers on them.

    The Rights Of Man

    The tempo was a challenge for me with the DUD DUD picking, but I think that it came out okay. Perhaps the earliest sound recording of the tune was in January, 1910, by the Scottish melodeon player...

    Re: Second Breakfast

    I like it. Makes me think of the mandolin part in Spinal Tap (Stonehenge) and the line in The Lord of the Rings... "He doesn't know about second breakfast?"
