Episode 87 - Why We Record
There are many reasons to record music. In this episode I present 8 reason to capture sound for the future. As I present my thoughts I will treat you to examples I have collected over the years including Tiny Moore jamming backstage with the David Grisman Quintet, a VERY limited release of The Tattooed Biker, Swedish bluegrass patriarch Bo Gustafsson playing a Gibson K-4 mandocello for the first time, a whacked out version of Old Joe Clark and more. You should be recording.
You don't really need a reason. Just think of it as time travel. One day you will look back, listen and be very glad that you hit record.

The musical outro is a bit of a live cut of the band Super String Theory. I was playing mandolin and banjo with the guys. If memory serves me this was a midnight show at The Brandy House in Atlanta.
Last thing: Forgive me. I said I will tell you the THREE tuning machines that I use. I only mentioned two. The third is my trusted old Korg CA-30. I also sometimes use a Peterson VS-1 because of it's superb "bass mode" when I am playing double bass.
Here's a link to download the "mini" flyer you can print out and give to your bluegrass pickin' friends to help me promote the show.
