In this episode I mentioned a diagram, a flow chart, which follows what I am talking about in the episode. Here it is.

I also mentioned my son Jackson's classical composition he calls "Capriccio in F". Oh! If I can ever get him steered towards bluegrass!

Capriccio in F by Jackson Monroe Laird

He's an amazing kid and from the sound of this he may have picked up a gene or two from J.S. Bach himself through our old German family lineage. Who knows! That moment around 1:09-1:10 is really cool. All I will say is that it's pretty impressive for a kid of 9 years old. Chris Thile: If you want to play this please contact Jackson.

And, finally, here is our joint project "Christmas Songs for Mandolin." Have fun with it and remember 1/2 the dough goes towards Jackson's french horn fund.
