    Gotta admit that I don't play too many Grisman tunes (I wish I did though). The one that I do play fairly often is Pigeon Roost from the Bluegrass Reunion recording. I worked that one up for mandolin contest years ago and I still like to play it. Janice is also high on my list to learn.

    I don't have a favorite tune, but I do have a favorite Dawg activity. I like to listen closely to Grisman and Statman's Mandolin abstractions for melodic ideas to write around or use in solos. Great stuff hiding the corners of that album.

    I would have to say Dawg Funk. 2nd would be friend of the devil with Jerry.

    At this point in time without a doubt it would be Mugavero, a John Carlini tune

    Dawg is my mandolin player loved. I love much of his songs but if I have to think an favourite song it is, sure, Dawg's Rag.

    My fav is from the Quintet '80 'record'. It's 'Barkley's Bug'. For one thing it reminds me of my old favorite cat (Smokey) and It's just a beautiful composition.....And the guitar work by Mark O'Connor is just the best.

    I would have to say E.M.D. Every time I've played it at a competition, I've won. So its made it way to the top of my list. I really like "The Thrill Is Gone" by him and Jerry Garcia also.

    Albuquerque Turkey, which I think is from Mondo Mando. Been loving it for years but couldn't quite hear the syncopation correctly. One of the few times I've used the tablature available to solve what was a musical problem. I can now play it in a jam well enough that it's recognized. Mark O'Conner's long solo is just staggeringly beautiful.

    Blue Midnight from the DGQ reunion is just a killer. Those guys take it by the balls and pull. Just excellent stuff.
