    Default By the Mark by Dailey and Vincent

    Can anyone direct me to where I can get the manolin tabs for "By the Mark" as performed by Dailey and Vincent?

    I don't have the tab but recently worked it up. It is in the key of C and not to hard to work up.

    their duo singing on this is simply incredible. The high part may be the highest I've ever heard a dude sing, while still sounding clean and great. I can't wait for their follow up album.

    Last year at Fiddlefest in Roanoke they did a Vocal workshop and someone ask how they sang so high. Jamie said it was because they wore their under ware three sizes too small.

    I dunno, don't countertenors before they hatch. (I dust off my Christmas CD by The King's Singers around this time every year...)

    Well that was Darrin singing the high harmony part and Jamie can kick it up a few notches there. Listen how high he gets on this one.

    Every time I hear this song, it sends chills up my spine. Yes, it's in the key of C. You might want to purchase the song or CD and give "Best Practice Slow Downer" a try. It's a free download. It will play the song slow (you chose how slow) all without changing the key. Then you could learn it that way, or jot down the tabs, and learn it that way. That's what I have done to songs I'm trying to learn. It's incredible..and the best part..it's free. Give it a whirl....

    Thanks for the software tip, Jackie! I have been working on it this morning and almost have the intro worked out... I'm kinda stuck so will take a break and get back at it. A girl who plays guitar and I are going to try to get this down for Easter to do at church. If I can't get the mandolin solos, we'll just do the chords and sing it. It's still a beautiful song!

    Here is the original version and writer. What's Ricky pickin' there?

    make sure you turn it up, the volume is really low.

    One of my favorite songs--wish I could play it. I'm learning, just not there yet.

    Is Mr. Skaggs using a capo? Looks like one beginning at 2:29, but it's hard to tell. I might just buy myself one.

    No capo for Mr. Skaggs, and you don't need one to play that song, either! It's just C, F & G... mostly just C & G with the F thrown in on the chorus. And if you watch Darrin Vincent play it, it appears that he's using 2 finger chords even.

    sure looks like he is capoed at the 5th. pause the video around the 2:24-2:30 mark and take a close look.

    Oops, now I see it! It's such an unobtrusive little thing compared to a guitar capo that I missed it! So what key does the capo put it in??

    If you play a G while capoed on the 5th fret it would be a C.

    So what's the advantage of using a capo to make it in the key of C, if you can play in the key of C without it? I know zip about music theory!

    I think that song begs for the two finger open chords. That is why the capo works well on that song and adds body and depth to it.

    would that make it easier to play up an octave as well as playing the open 2 finger chords? no theory here either!

    I agree. Open strings really sound great with this one.

    Thanks Chris, I got as far as the section just before the open D note, and couldn't get past it. I'll keep re-running it both on the iPod and on my fretboard and see if I can't make the rest of it sound right!

    It's the intro, and the lowest line is the G String, the next, the D, and so on.

    Hope that helps.
