I know there are other threads out there; the search turned up several hits, but either the recording is buried inside a multi-page thing, or...

Just a shout-out to having re-visited this *excellent* recording on today's run - clear, clean picking, good tunes, good players, good singing. It's all good. His way of attacking linear lines is one-of-a-kind, with power, tone and taste. I'm putting Pitchin' Wedge back into the daily repertoire.

I ran up on that album a few weeks a go on You Tube. I agree, some really good stuff on there. I found it looking for Tennessee Blues. One of my favorites there is Thirty Pieces of silver.

Pitchin' Wedge is one of the relatively few lyrical instrument mandolin numbers out there in E Major, done in a thoroughly modernistic fashion. Someone (Mike S.?) transcribed Adam's solos for TablEdit, in a very faithful manner.

Hi guys - Many thanks for ''Pitching wedge'', & to Alan specifically for turning up the recording which i'd never heard of. Adam Steffey is IMHO,one of the very finest pickers out there. I must look to see if the recording is on CD. 'Pitching Wedge' is now firmly embedded in my 'music files',
