    Hello All...

    Wow, what an impressive list of artists and bands using this great instrument...and Thanks to Niles for a most impressive list of all..

    One band I haven't seen, and I may have missed, is the Eagles..They use some Mando in at least one song, Lying Eyes...late in the song, in the third verse...it plays a small part but tastefully done...

    Thanks All!

    Mike

    Correct you are; the Eagles had a couple songs that featured the mandolin:

    - Saturday Night
    - Tequila Sunrise
    - Lyin' Eyes
    - Journey of the Sorcerer
    - Midnight Flyer
    - Hollywood Waltz

    While we are on the topic, I think one band that has been completely left out is Hootie and the Blowfish. They have had several songs with the mandolin. They even had Sam Bush make a guest appearance on mandolin/fiddle on their last album.

    Hootie songs with mandolin:

    - Running From an Angel
    - Honeyscrew
    - Tootie
    - The Earth Stopped Cold at Dawn
    - Innocence
    - Alright
    - Tears Fall Down
    - Leaving
    - Waltz Into Me
    - Autumn Jones

    Shawn Mullins album, "Ninth Ward Pickin' Parlor" has some great mando on several songs. My favorite is the mando in the song "Homemade Wine". Fantastic CD! Wish I could find someone who has some of the mando parts tabbed out. I'm a new player and don't know my way around the fretboard yet.

    Some others:

    John Hiatt: Only the Song Remains, Before I Go

    Steve Earle: Billy and Bonnie, many others

    Jethro Tull: Fat Man, A Christmas Song

    And I do believe that's Dawg pickin' on the Dead's "Friend of the Devil"
    Never say "bouzouki" to a TSA agent...

    You are correct -- there is indeed mando content in that song.

    Maybe someday I'll try to come up with a list of Cowboy Junkies songs featuring Jeff Bird's mandolin stylings. There are a lot of them.

    Maybe I missed these on an earlier post, but . . .

    Tom Petty has mandolin on a number of tracks and when Howie Epstein was still alive and playing bass with the Heartbreakers, he would often trade off and play mando on several numbers in concert. Heatbreaker guitarist Mike Campbell plays mandolin and bouzouki, too. I really like the way Petty used the cascading mandolin arpeggios on "It'll All Work Out" on the Wildflowers album.

    Bay Area rocker Chuck Prophet often has mandolin on his records and in concert. Tom Rozum did a show with him a few years back and played mandolin for most of the concert.

    Did anyone mention the Rowan Brothers or Michelle Shocked?

    The new Levon Helm record has mandolin all over it.

    Many of Buddy Miller's recordings have mandolin on them, too.

    They have been mentioned, but just for one song. There are many songs by Crash Test Dummies, Blue Rodeo and Steve Earle with mandolin. Another artist that I don't believe has been mentioned is Steve Winwood.

    I believe a song on Eric Clapton's unplugged album features a bit of mando...it's called Lonely Stranger.

    There's a band out of Austin called Okkervil River that uses mando on several of their albums.

    Carbon Leaf, a band out of Virginia, also uses mando in several songs on their latest release.

    Don't forget:

    The Replacements - "I Will Dare"(w/ Peter Buck on mando) from their seminal lp, Let It Be, and "Here Comes A Regular", from Tim.


    Also, another Blind Melon tune, Change, from their first cd.

    There is a whole lot of mandolin throughout Buffett's catalogue. #Also, check out Steve Goodman. #There's a reason he was Jethro Burn's partner after Homer. #Not only will you hear some great Jethro, Steve was known to pick up the dola from time to time.
