View Full Version : Leather Britches - Mandolin

Here's me on mandolin doing Leather Britches. I just posted a video on here yesterday, so I hope this isn't too much too often. Let me know if I'm breaking decorum. Also, should I just make one thread to put these in or keep posting them under separate threads? Thanks everyone.

Sounds great,man!
You gave me some good ideas on that tune. Not sure I can get my hands to do them...

PS:how do you learn new tunes? Just by listening? Mando tab?

Thanks guys :)
V7, these tunes I've been playing Ive learnt the basic tune from the Fiddlers Fakebook, which I highly recommend, then listened to versions wherever I can find them, and just kept playing it until I've known it well, and then recorded a version with the basic melody first and then improvisation. But I've also learned tunes by playing them at pickings. That's the more...flavorful way.

Really liked your take on this, particularly the little bluesy licks at 1:14 into it, and the big open strums provide some power into the mix. You've got a little bit of everything. Well done!

Great job! With picking like that, post as often as you'd like!! I don't know of any unwritten Café decorum regarding posting, so I'd say do whichever you prefer, though it would be kind of cool to have them all in one place...
