    I love Dm as well!

    'Ain't No Grave' is a great one. This is a nice version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU9BObi1GVw
    'The Wayfaring Stranger' is usually done in Am, but it's a very easy transposition to Dm on the mandolin.
    'C'est Noyé' by Victoria Vox. She's a uke player, but the song works well on mandolin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkVQHBbzZ8E
    I've also arranged 'Going to the West' in Dm. It's usually played in Dmaj or G.

    Enjoy!
    Daniel

    If you're willing to go slightly outside trad bluegrass:

    Minor Swing (Grisman's version is in Dm, the traditional gypsy jazz version is Am)
    Dark Eyes (also a gypsy swing tune)
    Opus 38 (Grisman)
    Shady Grove

    A couple good Em tunes:

    Swallowtail Jig
    EMD (Grisman)

    Play in a Tango band, you'll play in Dm all night long.

    What a great tune to jam to. As long as nobody is home to wonder wtf that noise is.

    Horgalaten is a Swedish tune and I think it's in Dm?
    I also think, "Home With the Girls in the Morning" is in Dm.
    I know there's a Bach Invention in Dm - just can't recall which one. They are fun to learn, especially if you have a guitar to learn the left hand part!
    I'll think of others. . .

    I also found some homework on this thread!
