    I was playing my octave on stage and a fellow came up and said “what is that an oud?” Seemed odd that he knew of an oud but not a big mandolin. Another time I was in the park playing some of the...

    Made this recording a few years ago. I learned it by ear from the original tv theme. It’s not terribly difficult to play.

    Re: Bach E Major Prelude fingering

    I was in a class with Caterina Lichtenberg and asked her this very question. She uses DDUD. It helps to play the first 4 notes of bar 17 DUDU, then start the pattern on the 2nd beat. I really like...

    Re: Grisman and Morse

    I have always liked those Roland JC 120s that Steve is using. Great clean tone. Looks like Dawg is using a saxophone style strap that goes around his neck rather than over the shoulder...interesting.
