    Default Slide mandolin in Quebec City

    We had a recent discussion of slide mandolin on the Forum. I just came across this footage of an unexpected slide at a Quebecois session (23:25 to 27:00).

    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    Yeah. I now know why so many people feel the need of a beater mandolin.
