John Reischman: “Little Pine Siskin”
 
Peghead Nation’s Melodic Mandolin Tunes instructor plays a solo version of an original tune he recorded on his stellar “Walk Along John” album.

While John Reischman was in the Peghead Nation studio earlier this year to shoot new lessons for his popular Melodic Mandolin Tunes course, we stepped outside so John could play a few tunes outside at the Cedar House, an artists’ event center in San Rafael, California. 

In this video, John plays his original tune “Little Pine Siskin,” which John recorded on his 2013 album Walk Along John, and which he teaches in his course. Appropriately for the leader of the Jaybirds, it continued the bird theme of the afternoon, during which John also played a great arrangement of the traditional tune “Grey Eagle,” which you can see here on Peghead Nation. And while neither an eagle nor a pine siskin was sighted during this shoot, you’ll hear a crow voicing its appreciation at the end of John’s playing here.
