    Andrew Marlin Session Player

    Ran across a few videos of Andrew sitting in on a session with his Loar. He gets to stretch out a bit from his usual style.

    Re: Playing Solo..

    You can definitely find examples of mandolin folk musicians playing solo. Check out Ry Cooder playing blues, Sam Bush (see below), Thile does solo numbers that are not classical, etc. etc.

    Adim: 2-1-3-x
    Aaug: 2-3-4-x
