This is no joke folks! Go over to the lesson page for a new Tony Rice solo. I decided to transcribe Tony’s solo from the Bluegrass Album Band version of “Molly and Tenbrooks.” It’s a killer solo with some tricky bits in it and a classic tony rice ending lick. The “lead in” was hard to hear so I had to guess a little. It’s not exactly what he played but it still works. Enjoy!

Do you like Tony Rice? I do! So, I made a video (lesson) of the tune “Streets of London” from the record Church Street Blues. Church Street Blues is one of my all time favorite records. Tony’s playing and singing is just so good . Check out the Lessons page for a video & tab. Enjoy!

A few months back the Slocan Ramblers teamed up with  Mojito Mastering (www.mojitomastering.com) and Dale Sood (Arts & Rec) to make a series of live music videos.The series will be called “the SLO/MO sessions.” Each episode will feature a different songwriter. Stayed Tuned for Episode 2.

In our first episode we were lucky enough to have the great Jadea Kelly (www.darthjadea.com) collaborate with us. We chose two songs to perform, one of which was Jadea Kelly’s original song “Never Coming Back.”  The second selection was a classic and one of our favorites, “I’m Looking Through You” by The Beatles.

You can view the entire Session here:

This is part one, which focuses on guitar set-up, picks and intonation. Stay tuned for part two. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks to Mojito Mastering for doing such a great job (as usual)
