Peghead Nation’s Monroe-Style Mandolin instructor Mike Compton took over our Facebook feed recently for a live workshop, in which he answered questions from his Peghead Nation students, and picked a bit. It was a wide-ranging discussion covering everything from holding the pick to playing at speed to how he makes slides sound so great! Take a look at the full workshop in the video above.

We had a virtual tip jar for Mike’s workshop, and you can still contribute to that at any time!

ABOUT MIKE COMPTON

Mike Compton is a Grammy and IBMA award-winning artist and is a passionate teacher and advocate for the mandolin. Mandolin Magazine calls him “a certified mandolin icon.” Born in Meridian, Mississippi, Compton grew up hearing old-time country music and took up the mandolin as a teenager, drawn to the powerful mix of old-time fiddle styles, blues influences, and pure creativity embodied in Bill Monroe’s playing. By the mid-1980’s, he was a founding member of the Nashville Bluegrass Band, which quickly became one of the most prominent and admired in bluegrass. He is an in-demand instructor and runs the popular Monroe Mandolin Camp in addition to teaching at high-profile workshops around the country.
