    Re: Ry Cooder isolated mandolin Love in Vain

    "Mr. Cranky" is a something I read years ago (maybe in GP?) it stuck in my mind. I love his playing completely and thoroughly, no disrespect intended.

    Is "Fat Man" the little Feat tune?

    Gig was last night and "Daughters" went very well. The three motifs (guitar intro, short guitar break and short piano break) are very mandolin friendly.

    For the bridge, I played the first chord...

    "Daughters" by John Mayer

    Sitting in with a guitarist/singer next week and the bridge section of this tune is giving me a little trouble (compounded by the fact that I have 8 other tunes to get down and no time to practice)....
