Ola Belle Reed's powerful "High on the Mountain" was the first tune Ronnie learned on mandolin, and he shows all the special tricks in playing this beautiful mountain song. Ronnie goes on to teach his own tribute to Bill Monroe, "Glen Rock," as well as show-stoppers such as "Quicksburg Rondezvous," "Baltimore Jonny" and the perennial Monroe favorite, "Rawhide."
The Del McCoury band is well known for the influence the blues has played on their music, and Ronnie covers the classic "How Long Blues" as well as country-flavored hits such as "I Feel the Blues Movin' In," "Highway of Pain," and "Don't Stop the Music." This intensive lesson in mandolin playing will greatly enhance your technique, and add some powerful tunes to your repertoire.
