    Default Hot Shot Players on Electric Mando?

    So I've got a new electric mandolin, and I need some inspiration. Anyone have any videos of well-known mando players on electrics, like this clip of Sam Bush?

    I don't know how well known Jimi Hocking is but he is fun to watch. He can play as fast as the bluegrassers......

    Also listen to any recordings you can of the great Tiny Moore of Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys band. Hot stuff.

    Do they have to be well-known? Or do you just want to hear some shredding?

    I'm working on something else, but here's something from my old band. Brief solo at 2:30.Me, I like the two-fret bends after the choruses.



    That's not the take selected for the album, but it shows some of my (ahem) moves. For learning purposes, only.

    Seems the audio file from the CD is too large. Oh well!

    That's who I was going to bring up. Yes.

    There is a recording, (I can't find), of Asleep at the Wheel with Marty Stuart on electric mandolin. Sublime.

    Speaking of Cowboy Junkies, their appearance on the old Jimmy Fallon show nearly five years ago is what got me hip to Jeff Bird. Great tone, just a commanding aural presence. Since he's sitting down, upstage, the camera man seems a bit unsure where this big sound is coming from. Surely it couldn't be from this little instrument? Can't seem to find it anywhere other than this Shanghai site. Not the best quality.

    A lot of possibilities are showed here:



    Mainly for 4/5 strings, but it΄s still ok for a
    8 string.

    That's along the lines of what I was thinking about: big-name players who almost always play acoustics playing an electric (I'd love to hear Marty Stuart on an electric, btw, and I can imagine it's sublime.)

    For example, Thile on an electric? Dawg? Dare I ask, Bill Monroe? (And yeah, I've seen that clip of him on electric guitar.)

    Also, I'm interested in hearing these kinds of players on solid-body electrics, as it would just be so tonally different from what they normally do.

    Another player I'd like to hear on an electric (and also to throw in a non-bluegrass guy) is Don Stiernberg--I can imagine his jazz style transferring incredibly well to an e-mando.

    Btw, the above is in no way meant to communicate ingratitude for all the other posts in this thread. In other words, thanks for the videos, all, and keep them coming!

    You gave me just about enough information - coupled with your post from seven years ago - to find it. You couldn't find it because it's kind of misnamed.



    Better title, but still not enough for easy finding. Plus the album cover, for further listening:



    Here to help. And the whole thing is sublime, not just Marty's solo.

    Don has a Michael Stevens e-mando, which he's used as a sideman in other people's bands. I don't think there's anything in print with Don as bandleader playing electric, although he might be one someone else's record.

    Stiernberg on his 1st album, many moons ago, Rosetta, played a Tiny style 5-string electric on 3 tunes. He choose 2 Charlie Parker tunes, Billie's Bounce & Scrapple from the Apple, and the old chestnut the title tune, Rosetta. He did a superb job on all three. I believe I have seen him pull out a 5-string live for a tune or 2 over the years.

    Yep to Rosetta. Still have the vinyl LP bought when it came out, 1979. That was my first intro to jazz mandolin, still holds a special place. And on the tune Rosetta, the elec. guitar solo by Tom Theabo is very great.

    Check out Michael Kang who plays with The String Cheese Incident. If you go to around 2:40 in this video, you'll get an idea of what he does on a 5-string:
