This is my attempt at a favorite John Hartford tune. Since I can't sing worth a darn I did it as an instrumental (which is fairly common). I play mandolin and resonator guitar on the recording. The Band in A Box RealTracks band helped me out on guitar rhythm and bass. I have a new recording interface and software and I am still learning so the recording quality is so-so. Hope y'all enjoy my attempt at it.

Sweet mandolin playing, is there a way to find the mandolin riffs you were using

Thanks Tony! I'm not much of a theorist but in general a lot of the licks are playing around with the G scale. I have practiced some of the scales quite a bit but instead of playing straight scales have mixed the notes around a bit to get some interesting (to me) licks. Wish I could explain it better than that...
