Mandolin Mondays #109 /// David Benedict "Twisty Jigs"

Rate this Entry
Tomorrow I'm getting on a flight to visit Ireland (so excited!), so I've been brushing up on my jigs. Recently learned these three particularly twisty ones--"The Return Home," "Cahal's Jig," and "The Mystery Inch."



Stay tuned for my new 7-part video lesson series on Mandolins Heal the World all about the Irish jig. We'll be looking at the right hand jig picking pattern, Irish triplets, and melodic variations for 7 traditional tunes. Subscribe here for full access: https://mandolinshealtheworld.com/

MM hats and stickers are available at my bandcamp page here: https://davidbenedict.bandcamp.com/merch

Also, you can contact me through my website for a free copy of the tab/notation transcription of the solos in this video: http://davidbenedictmusic.com/contact/

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

Happy Picking!
David

    I love your playing, and I was watching your right hand in this video because I want to improve my right-hand technique. Do you have an unusually long thumb or a special pick grip? Your grip seems to give you great control and a good angle on the strings, but of course I can only see the back of your hand.

    Thank you so much for the skill, the feel and the amazing double-picking in this performance!
