Mandolin Mondays #281 w/ The Foreign Landers

Rate this Entry
Something a little different for Mandolin Mondays this week! Tabitha and I wrote this instrumental mando/banjo tune for our pandemic puppy Finn (special guest appearance at the end!). We recorded it on our brand new Foreign Landers EP Put All Your Troubles Away, and filmed it here live to share with you all!

We're so happy to have this EP out in the world now--huge thanks to all the folks who've already listened and ordered the album. We've got it available here if you'd like to check it out: https://theforeignlanders.bandcamp.c...-troubles-away

Also I'm offering a free copy of the tab/notation transcription for the mandolin part of this tune right here:

For folks interested in the transcription book for the entire EP, I've got available over on my Patreon page here:

And we'd love to connect with you! Check out the links below for more Foreign Landers stuff!

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then...

Happy Picking!

    I interviewed David and Tabitha about their new EP on my radio show this past friday(5/21). We played cuts from the album and I followed the interview with cuts from David’s solo cds, Mile Twelve, and Tabitha’s bands, Midnight Skyracer and Cup O Joe. The show will be archived on the WTJU website until June 4th here:

    What a great piece and sparkling arrangement! So tight and clear as a bell (or two). Congratulations on the EP, and thank for the continuing Mandolin Mondays, David and Scott. Finn at the fin was just fine, too!
