    Adrian Gross - Maiden's Prayer

    Hey Folks!

    Here's Maiden’s Prayer, with John David Williams on button accordion.

    This is a favourite jam tune of mine, especially since slow numbers that aren't waltzes are a bit of a bluegrass...

    Bit of gloomy looking film, apt for these gloomy days without any live music, but the Springwell is developing and maturing beautifully, to my ears.

    This is one of the great American novels.
    In an early chapter Miss Lonelyhearts (his personal name is never mentioned) ruminates on how mandolins are tuned.

    Re: Mandolins "Opening Up"

    Too bad the MC members have been provoked into going down this particular rabbit hole again. Sigh. But if you are going to discuss this topic, I urge folks to please try to be clear about what they...
  12. Molly Tuttle and Tristan Scroggins: Olympia, WA

    Tuttle recorded a full-band version of this Rancid song from last century on her new album, but this is a great duo version. Scroggins rocks the rhythm backing her up, and then both of them totally...
  13. Our version of David Grisman's 'Ricochet' / quarantine video

  14. Kate Wolf Accompanied By Two Mandolins – 1985

    Kate Wolf was another talent that was taken from us all too soon. She’s a staple in my music library and “Like A River” (the studio version) came up this morning. Thought I’d share a live version...
  15. Leo Kottke on 10-string -- "William Powell"

    I revisited this happy tune that seems to be about a debonair movie star. I'm using a flatpick and emulating Leo Kottke's finger-picking. Recorded with just my Shure KSM 32, this is another preview...

    LiuQin

    The LiuQin is the closest Chinese instrument to the mandolin. I think one of the tunings they use is GDAE. I wonder if anyone has bought one either from an importer in the US or directly from China...
