  1. St Anne's Reel



    I've been working on this tune recently and thought I'd run a few takes for the internet. Hope you guys enjoy!
  2. John Prine - That's The Way The World Goes Round

    Hey guys!

    I'm not much of a singer but I thought you guys may enjoy this. I was working on some John Prine this week and couldn't help myself.



    Cheers!
  3. Jockey Full of Bourbon - Tom Waits [Acoustic]

    Tom Waits is one of my favorite songwriters, and Iíve wanted to do a song off of Rain Dogs for a while now. Hereís my take on his tune Jockey Full of Bourbon.

  4. So Long, Mario - 4 on 6 [Original]

    Hey guys! I wrote this song a couple years ago with some great friends in Morgantown, WV, and we actually recorded it on a record. I was feeling a little nostalgic this week so I thought I'd throw together this quick arrangement. Enjoy!



    All the writing credits of this 7/4 funk tune:

  5. Goodnight Irene - Traditional [Acoustic]

    Hey guys! I went after another traditional tune this week. Here's my rendition of Goodnight Irene.

  6. Nocturne - Spike Hughes [Jazz Mandolin] (#58)

    Hey guys! I'm a huge fan of Julian Lage and I have been listening to his trio album, Arclight, since it was released. I couldn't help but cover his arrangement of the Spike Hughes tune, "Nocturne."



    I believe this tune was originally recorded in 1933 by Spike Hughes (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong), and I immediately fell in love with both his and Julian's arrangements. I hope you dig it!
  7. Hats Off - Mandolin/Upright Bass Duo Album Pt. 1

    Hey guys! I posted over in the jazz forum as well, but I thought I would throw the videos up here.

    I'm putting out a duo new record on May 5th with the incredibly talented Mike Gurrola on bass. Here is a live take of the record's title track!

  8. Fresh Prince Rap (On Mandolin Of Course) & Update

    Hey guys.

    I know I didn't post here this last Friday. Moving forward I'm only going to post the videos to this blog that are more mandolin relevant. This is another silly transcription I did a while ago.



    This Friday I'm putting up another song from a video game, so I won't put it up here, but I have another jazz mandolin video that I'll share!
  9. The Legend of Zelda [Acoustic] (#49)

    Hey guys!

    I couldn't resist doing another song from the new Zelda game. This one is more of a Django type waltz, so you may enjoy.

    Next week though, I'm coming back with a tune written by Ben Wendel, an absolutely amazing saxophone player and composer.

  10. The Legend of Zelda [Acoustic] (#48)

    Hyello. This week I put together a minimalist arrangement of a song from one of my favorite game franchises ever.

    I always include a section of improv so of course I took a chorus over it.

    Next week I'll be back with a combination of a Django song and another. See you then!
