Episode 98 - Year End Wrap Up

After a bit of mumbo-jumbo about the past year and speculating on the future I get into the meat of this episode. The heart of this episode explores a question sent to me by a listener, Brandon Timms.

He asks about the pros and cons of assigning the lead singing role to a single person versus giving everyone a chance to sing lead. It's a valid question and I hope you enjoy my response. After skinning that cat I close with some discussion of goal-setting.

The closing music for this episode is a a tune I wrote for mandolin in the style of the early 20th century mandolin ensembles and bands. It's called "Laird's March" and is essentially a mandolin duet.

In this version I play both mandolin parts, mandola, mandocello, guitar and bass. Thanks to multi-tracking I was able to simulate a one-man mandolin orchestra.

If you like the tune I have a video lesson which teaches it.

And, here is a direct link to that forum thread which I mentioned on Mandolin Cafe.
