Hi Everyone, I'm a new poster and a relatively new mando player. I played Irish fiddle for many years and fingerstyle blues guitar for many more. I now have a Weber Gallatin and I'm interested in learning more on mando. I don't really want to play bluegrass and I don't want to rehash the (few thousand?!) Irish fiddle tunes I know. What I'd like to learn are some solo mandolin pieces, with our with out vocals, that have an old timey modal sort of feel (minor or major keys, droned strings, solid rhythms. etc). Basically, this is the sort of thing I wander into when I'm noodling. The closest familiar reference I can think of might be something like Shady Grove.
Can anyone suggest a good instructional CD or DVD, or even a recording I could learn from? I'm sorry to be so obscure. It's just that I know what I want to play and I'm not sure how best to describe it. Thank you for any help. Regards, Michael
