Learn To Play Blues Mandolin [VHS]
Mandolin novices will start out by learning a basic G scale and how to alter it to create a blues scale. After demonstrating his pick strokes and tremolo technique, Steve dives right into Divin’ Duck Blues by the great Yank Rachell. Steve and John Sebastian, another jug band and blues enthusiast, perform the tune, and then Steve takes it apart, note-by-note.
Steve lays out some of the primary blues chords on the mandolin, showing how it can become a wonderful accompanying instrument with the use of partial chords for rhythm comping. Turnarounds, double stops and variations on a walking boogie-woogie line are all essential parts of a blues repertoire, and Steve shows several of these, including a variation he learned directly from the legendary Howard Armstrong.
From there he launches into some powerful and challenging songs, each one of which shows you something new on the instrument. The Lonesome Train That Carried My Gal Away, from the recordings of Charlie McCoy and the Mississippi Sheiks, is a good-time tune that Steve plays on banjo-mandolin while John accompanies him on 6-string banjo. Big Joe Williams’ Juanita Stomp is played on a "high-strung" mandolin (the lower strings are tuned to octaves) and features a rockin’ blues riff in A. Steve’s raucous original, Saturday Night in Jail, contains double stops, chord comps, blues licks and scales and, as Steve puts it, "fun-lovin’ high-jinks." Steve and John close the lesson with a performance of Shotgun Blues, which Steve plays on an electric mandolin that once belonged to Yank Rachell.
Snakehead Run Plays Silver Spring's Veterans Plaza
Snakehead Run plays an infectious, driving variety of old-time acoustic blues that often has audiences tapping their toes and dancing. Specializing in authentic blues that you might have heard on a street corner or juke joint in New Orleans, Memphis, or Louisville early in the last century, they try to introduce listeners to where some of today’s music comes from but in today’s terms. They not only play great music, they entertain! Snakehead Run is: Guitarist and lead vocalist “Papa” Denny Buck. A 30-plus-year veteran of bars, coffeehouses and festivals in his native Ohio, New York City, and in DC since the mid-80s, He sings and plays on his s teel Dobro with all the intensity and enthusiasm of his idols Bukka White, Blind Boy Fuller, Robert Wilkins, and Robert and Tommy Johnson. Multi-instrumentalist “Bro” Mark Casale settles here on mandolin in the style of blues virtuosos Yank Rachell and Charlie McCoy, and adds some funky fiddling. He also contributes the back-up vocals and the composition of a couple fiddle tunes for the group. His talents have led the band to explore the string and jug band side of the blues spectrum. Jim "Son" Bunch (Gutbucketeer) provides the foundation on washtub bass and jug. Jim has accumulated a lot of experience on the 'tub in his many years, also playing with The All New Genetically Altered Jug Band. He's originally from Texas and first learned to play washtub on the streets of Ann Arbor, MI.
Despite all my previous complete failures to learn a musical instrument, I bought this cheap mandolin. I'm not predicting musical success, but will say that I've really enjoyed the time I've spent with it so far. I love that it's small and I can just pick it up and sit in the back yard with it, that it has no chords or electricity of any kind, and that I can play it rather quietly. I love the sound of it.
