I’d like you to meet my new mandolin. She isn’t really new but she is new to me :) I found her on craigslist (for an awesome deal) and I think I’m going to name her Amanda Lynn. (haha) Nothing fancy, but I love the color and sound! My old mandolin was bought on ebay years ago and after moving so much, it’s not in the greatest shape. I’ve played the guitar for years, but still need to learn a lot on the mandolin. My goal is to learn a few songs by Christmas :)
Bluegrass has been a big part of my life since I was young. Sometimes my mom played dance music or her fitness music throughout the house while I was in my room listening to Ricky Skaggs or Nickel Creek. Yes, I understand that this may make me sound realllly country but oh well. My absolute favorite…and I think one of the most talented is Chris Thile. I could sit outside, write, and listen to his music all day.
So, in honor of my little mandolin, here are a few bluegrass songs for you. If you don’t like bluegrass thank you for reading this post anyway. Love yall!
