    David Benedict's Mandolin Monday tune today is in Bb, if you missed it.

    My main gig has for many years been a big band playing swing charts, usually in flat keys. A lot of the "newer" charts are in sharp keys and most of us horn players are accustomed enough that we don't freak out anymore when we see a bunch of sharps.

    I came across an interesting tune recorded by fiddler Gary Lee Moore in the key of F called "Uncle Pig"! Not one you hear every day in my area.

    So great to hear Butch's super-clean picking again.

    That's where I first heard it. The cross-picking works in F.

    Here is a You tube link to a Monroe influenced tune in F for mandolin I recorded with my New Mexico Group around 2008. It's one I wrote call "Nates Rambles". I had forgotten all about this tune.

    F gives everything a nice lower tonality.

    Curtis Buckhannon taught me a bluegrass-y version of "Go Tell It On the Mountain" in F. That key presents opportunities for double stops all over that tune. I generally play it at church around Christmastime.

    FWIW, many of the standard repertoire tunes we play at church are in F.
