What would Bill think?
There is another great version of this tune available on iTunes. The Album is from Butch Robins - "Grounded-Centered-Focused". I'm not sure if its Monroe, or Compton playing it. The tune is...
In no particular order:
1. New Camptown Races Frank Wakefield
2. El Cumbanchero Jesse McReynolds
3. Rawhide Bill Monroe
4. Dawgs Rag David Grisman Quintet
5. Kentucky The Louvin...
Does anyone have a TEF of this tune from Dawgnation they can share?
Concur with you Spruce. He's way underrated and has influenced countless young mandolin players with his instruction book. Crazy Creek is one good tune! The TAB for it was in the Backroads...
There are some gems there.
Jim and Jesse - Mandolin Workshop is a must if you have Tottle's Book and Andy Statman's Crosspicking book.
Bill Monroe - Master of Bluegrass is priceless.
Backroad Mandolin is an outstanding LP. I have the LP and the tab that came with it. I also got a CD from someone of it once upon a time. It's a great comparision of crosspicking and straight...
I have de Quarvains Tendonitis. Hunts like hell. I'm going to try the above ideas because obviously what I'm doing isn't working.
Ice when I get home.
Ozzie Osborne "see you on the other side"?
Get out a pistol and shoot the lock off! works every time in the movies.
Google Chad Fadely to see if he's playing anywhere in the area. Greg Boyd can hitch you up there too. The is was a restaurant called the Mandolin that had some jams.
You get what you pay for. I've had mine for at least 5 years.
If it was me, I'd buy the Dawg 6 CD set and start there. The problem from my perspective is you need someone to practice with. When your friends are all Bluegrassers its a challenge! That CD set...
Thanks, I'll give it a try tonight.
I enjoy this tune from Early Dawg and Bluegrass Quintet in Japan. Anyone know the chords for this? Tabedit has a simple version but it doesn't sound right?
These are still my favorites.
A couple of things I've always lived by;
A friend once told me concerning one of his valuable vintage Porsches that if he wasn't going to drive it he might as well by stocks. Maked sense. Milk...
Yep a total knock off of a Gibson of that era. Same inlay everything (including tone!)
Is is a total self promoting thread, but what the heck. My mom recently made me a scrap book for my 50th birthday. There was this photo of me playing my new Ibanez 524 in the high school bluegrass...
I put one on my Weber Big Sky. I had it professionally installed in lieu of the original Brekke. It made a world of difference to my ear.
I forgot Grisman and Garcia. That's a must have too.
Ditto the first DGQ Quintet.
Jack Tottle, Author of the book "Bluegrass Mandolin.: Its a stable instruction book for most bluegrass players. He is an excellent mandolin player (find a copy of Backroad mandolin).
Check out Cumberland Acoustic. Thier pick guards are great.
My wife has a CD of his where he plays a bluegrass/fiddle tune. It sounded exactly like I would expect from a violinist....... too perfect. It completely lacked the raw something of a great fiddler...
