  1. The links to the sound files are not active yet, but I am looking forward to this one. Your version in the video sounds great! Also, thanks for posting the mando tab link, that is a nice touch.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up. That's weird! I'll fix the links when I get home tonight.

  3. Okay, links should be working now. Let me know if there are any further issues. Thanks again.

  4. Thanks Dave...another great tune! I had never thought of working on this one before, but having a backing track to pick against is so helpful that it makes sense to learn all the tunes that you've posted. I'm trying to get my library of songs built up before heading out to Steve Kaufman's flatpicking camp next June.

  5. Cool, Max. Hopefully I'll see you there.

  6. Ditto, this song was not on my radar until I heard your version. I am having a lot of fun learning it with these tracks! Thanks again for all of your effort on these, it is greatly appreciated.

  7. These are great practice tools! Thanks for posting these.

    One request...would it be possible to get downloadable zip files for the tracks that don't have them already?

    I've been putting your tracks on my ipod and recording myself playing over top them. With no rhythm track in the background, I can really pin point where I should focus my practice. If it's too much trouble I understand.

    Thanks again and keep on picking!

  8. Ash,

    I'm planning to add zips for each song. While you're waiting for me to get around to it, though, be aware that you can right click on any of the links and download the file.


  9. Okay, all zips should be present now. If you don't see one for a song, try the refresh button.


  10. Another gem! great playing. Mandolin players give thanks.

  11. Hey - love your site. Think I can get a working link to your contest arrangement for Old Spinning Wheel?

    The dropbox link seems to be broken.
