    Smutty nose makes some great beers. Look for the variety pack. Love the IPA and ales. Any tabs available?
    Thanks. Great work.

    Hey Kenny, I have hand written tabs which look pretty bad. I could scan them though. Thanks for the nice words!

    That'd be great. Working through 1st 1 & trying to figure out Sam's version of Sailin' Shoes. Thanks and love the videos. Not to high jack this thread but does anyone have the chords to Sailin' Shoes?

    Sailin' Shoes, off of the muy excellent Late As Usual, is in G chord. The key thing there is the dom7 tonality he gets on the opening vamp. He's fingering 3-5-7 on the D-A-E strings and sliding up and down. Not easy...and so very great.

    Great series! I confess that I'm mostly a wine drinker at home, but beer is what I drink at sessions and with my beer-appreciating friends when they visit the house for a jam. I like the dark ones, the darker and thicker the better, and not too sweet.

    The house beer I stock for those occasions is usually "Black Butte Porter" from Deschutes Brewery. Always available at the local Safeway and not expensive. My absolute favorite dark beer is "Old Rasputin" Russian Imperial Stout from North Coast Brewing. But it's not easy to find, and a bit pricey. A terrific, complex beer... a meal in a glass, not pale dishwater. Sometimes they have it at the pub where we have our Scottish/Irish sessions and I always order it then. When they don't have it I drink the old standby Guinness at the session. They do at least have it on tap, and they do the little shamrock thing on top, which is cute.

    At home I do the philistine thing and serve the dark beers cold, but at the session I drink two pints over a three hour period, pacing myself (dark/thick beers are good for that), so they inevitably warm up to the proper temperature.

    Hey Daniel, just found this thread and it's awesome! Great way to learn some new licks and find out about some good beer. Speaking of beer, I'm in STL and we're undergoing a renaissance in craft brewing at the moment so we have no shortage of good, local beer and breweries to choose from. Unfortunately, I don't believe any of them are distributed to SC at the moment. However, I recently had a good porter from a brewery in Asheville, NC which may be available to you. The brewery was French Broad and the beer was their Anvil Porter. It was tasty. Keep up the good work!

    Daniel, thanks for sharing! My only suggestion would be to perhaps flip the camera into a horizontal orientation

    Thanks again,

    Fat Tire was (and likely still is) very popular where I used to live in CO--about a half mile from the New Belgium brewery in FtCl...seemed to be the beverage de rigueur, and naturally I had to drink boatloads of it. But I was mostly into rioja and flamenco at the time. The Tour De Fat is loads of fun.

    NB brews up a batch of some nice ales--I enjoyed the Abbey, Trippel, and 1554 Black

    Keep the licks and the sips comin'!

    I've had too many Belgian and Belgian style beers to count and I would rank Fat Tire close to, if not at, the bottom. Pretty poor ratings on ratebeer.com too.

    For Belgian styles not directly from Belgium/Flanders/Holland, I recommend anything by Unibroue(La Fin Du Monde is really good), anything from Ommegang, and Alexander Valley Brewing has both an amazing double and triple. I put all these right up there with the real deal Trappist beers. Surely you can get Ommegang and Unibroue in MA - they're from NY and Quebec respectively and at my local Costco in the SF Bay Area.

    After I posted my message I came across #2. I love that lick in number 2. I've been jamming on it all night

    No pecan beer for me though

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Dan, I am just up the road from you in Columbia and I love the Lazy Magnolia beers. You need to try their Sweet Potato Stout (if you haven't), great taste.

    Also great playing. I am going to go practice that lick now...thanks for doing this.

    I'm a big fan of lager beers from Europe. I think you would enjoy Carlsberg Elephant if you can find it in your area. Beware, it is a high-gravity brew, 7.2 percent.

    Mandolins and beer are a great combination

    It's a shame I haven't seen bazens flatbac around for a while, brewed by a friend of mine who plays mandolin and is also a brewer!

    Hey good buddy, the suspense is killing me. Can't wait to see the beer you've chosen, and the lick! Tonight I will be enjoying a Prima Pils from Victory brewing, while perfecting the lick from week one.

    Will be posting new video tomorrow evening. I picked up a few last minute gigs this week. I'm looking forward to this one. Fun jazzy/bluesy lick over a slow progression. Also the first beer recommended by a café member!

    Smile Re: Mandolins and Beer!

    Funny how my beer choice seems to affect the tunes I play, I'll enjoy a Full Sail IPA and find myself playing "Tipsy Sailor" or I'll have a Black Butte Porter and out comes "Kid on the Mountain" Oh I've got a Ninkasi in the fridge getting cold, I can feel "Wind that shakes the Barley" coming on. So many Beers, so many Tunes!

    I put my notice in this week at my current brewery. Now begins the process of opening my own. Tanks are ordered and the lease is signed. We should be tapping beer in January. I will send some your way when the goods are flowing.

    A fellow porter fan! If you have a chance, see if you can find some Baltic porters. Żywiec has one, as does Baltika. If you like Old Rasputin, I think you'll enjoy those. Also, there is a brewery in San Diego called Ballast Point. They make an inperial stout called Sea Monster that packs a wollop, though it is a little pricey. Still, for $10, one can buy a top-tier beer, whereas the equivalent in the wine world will run you upwards of $60 or more. I, for one, welcome the craft beer renaissance.
