    Default Marty Stuart Mandolin Solo

    Anybody happen to catch Marty Stuart's rendition of Orange Blossum Special last night? I knew he had guitar chops, didn't realize he is in top form on the mandolin.

    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    Marty's great be it on mando or guitar! Love the Clarence B-bender. Check out his mandolin stuff when he was a kid in the early 70s with Lester Flatt and then go slowly forward in time! Great stuff, I got to finally see him and his band a few years ago at our County Fair and it wasn't a disappointment at all, "well I knew it wouldn't be anyways" he did some mandolin solo stuff and his band is what Country music should be!

    Marty Stuart's the one who got me in to mandolin. I've seen him do this version live and it's even more incredible.

    Marty was playing mandolin with Lester Flatt and The Nashville Grass when he was 14. Not only is he an accomplished guitar and mandolin player, he plays a dang good fiddle to.

    After his time with Nashville Grass Marty toured with Doc Watson in the late 1970s till 1980. The first time I saw Doc was from the end of the last tour though Marty Stuart was not nearly so well known at the time.

    There is a famous Lester Flatt intro of Marty at 13 years old doing “Rawhide” with Bill Monroe standing in the wings it has the most electrifying last lick ever!

    He plays a beat up old mandolin made by old friend Chris Warner, who also played banjo with Jimmy Martin among others. Yeah I remember that kid playing with Lester and Nashville Grass.
