    Default Sam Bush -Sailin' Shoes / Crossroads

    Great video. You can really see what Sam is doing. Great lesson too I guess.

    Awesome. Except that I got physically ill during Crossroads when he demonstrated how freakishly rhythmic his right hand is . . .

    It was a great video, once I got past the wildly moving camera at the beginning. That's not arty, it's just annoying!

    Amazing. There's another great on on this guys channel of Sam playing the Old North Woods, a fiddle tune I didn't know but now I love. I'd never heard him playing a solo fiddle tune before.

    Played on his "antique Gibson mandolin". I love that description of ol' Hoss but for some reason never thought of it as "antique".

    Thanks for that link Tom. I've seen a few different vids of Sam playing that live, but I like that up close and personal format.

    BTW here is a different, but equally fun mando-centric full-band take on that tune by the Blue Dogs. (NFI)

    Good performance.

    This video made me want to play the mandolin a little while ago and got that fun ride started for me!����
