Episode 105 - How To Pick With Grisman
Would your wildest dreams come true if you could sit and jam with David Grisman for hours on end? Or maybe Tony Rice, Sam Bush, Jerry Garcia, or any of your musical heros? You'd be surprised at how easily this can be done. And guess what? You will become a better player at the same time.
Scroll down this page and I have included links to some of my own personal favorite recordings which I love to play along with.

NOTES AND LINKS FOR THIS EPISODE:
Incidentally, if you use any of these Amazon links to purchase this music I get a microscopic "referral fee" which adds nothing to your cost. Every month I get an email from Amazon telling me "Unfortunately, you did not qualify to receive any money from Jeff Bezos' massive hoard. We are going to hold on to the 12 cents you earned this month and we will send it to you when (and if) your total reaches $30."
Eventually, however, if I am patient--and if you buy something--it will force them to send me the bucks. Then I can instantly hop back on Amazon and buy a couple of sets of Dobro strings from... er um... Amazon! Arrrrgh! Maybe I'll just order them from Elderly. Yeah. I think I will.
The music for this episode is:
Intro - Buddy Ashmore and Pony Express singing Prison Walls written by Randy Godwin.
Outro - A little recording of Pony Express (Buddy Ashmore - Guitar, Mike Estes - fiddle, David Ellis - lead guitar, Randy Godwin - bass, and Bradley Laird, mandolin) playing one of Mikey's favorite fiddle tunes.
We recorded this in Mike's garage and he used the final mix at his daughter's wedding a few days later. They danced their "Father/Daughter First Dance" at the wedding reception to this track. Mike probably said "Of course I'll dance... how's about a good fiddle tune?" She had to say yes. After all Daddy was footin' the bill!
