Dog Days of Summer


The dog days of summer are upon us. In this episode I catch you up on the bluegrass happenings around the Kingdom of Lairdonia and tell you a little story from my first real job. Then I get to the heart of the episode: "Lessons From The Dawg". Not him. Real dogs! You'd be surprised what you can learn from watching a couple of dogs. And, amazingly, how it relates to pickin' bluegrass.


In this episode I mentioned the book "Mandolin Song Book" which is here.
