John Reischman was recently in the Peghead Nation studio to shoot new lessons for his popular Melodic Mandolin Tunes course. While he was in town, John treated us, and a few random passers-by, to a couple tunes outside at the Cedar House, an artists’ event center in San Rafael, California.
In this video, John plays his Texas fiddle–inspired arrangement of the traditional tune “Grey Eagle.” He often played the arrangement in the 1980s with his band The Good Old Persons, who recorded the tune on their Part of the Story album. John says that he learned the variations from his good friend, bandmate, and excellent fiddler, Paul Shelasky.
