    Re: 'When Mandolins Dream' Notation and Tab

    Quick fix, in measure 23 the correct fingering is the 2nd finger for the first D note on the A string instead of using the first finger (silly little slip up when inputting numbers, argh)

  21. Re: Learning to style of Jesse McReynolds: Nine Pound Hammer

    The cool thing about it is that it is just so unique. Cool to see him use a banjo-esque roll with his picking, giving him that syncopated sound. They are cooking on this video, he burns it up!
