Last fall, the Matt Flinner Trio played a show at the Back Room in Berkeley, California, and at the same time Mike Compton was in the Bay Area to record new lessons for his Monroe-Style Mandolin course on Peghead Nation. Matt asked Mike and Peghead Nation co-founder and Flatpicking Guitar instructor Scott Nygaard to join the trio for one of their popular Music du Jour evenings, during which guest musicians play tunes that Matt and his bandmates, guitarist Ross Martin and bassist Eric Thorin, have written earlier that day.

To close out the show, the band invited Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Sharon Gilchrist to the stage, along with pianist and owner of the Backroom, Sam Rudin. Scott led the band in this three-mandolin, two-guitar rendition of the early blues standard, “Trouble in Mind.”

Learn to play blues and bluegrass mandolin and more from Mike in his Monroe-Style Mandolin course, or mandolin with Sharon in her Beginning Mandolin or Intermediate Bluegrass Mandolin courses, or guitar with Scott in his Flatpicking Guitar, Roots and Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar, Intermediate Flatpicking Guitar, and Weekly Guitar Workout courses.
