January 1, 2018: Starting out the New Year right with an awesome Mandolin Mondays video from East Nashville cat Josh Rilko of Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys. Josh gives us a fresh look at an old time standard on his big sounding Bayard Blain mandola.

Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys has been in the scene for the past 8 years. They’ve made a mark on the acoustic music world with their strong bluegrass musicianship, innovative arrangements, and soulful singing. Check out their recorded work: https://lindsaylou.bandcamp.com/

Here’s Josh with a word about the tune in this video, “I’m playing an original arrangement of the old time tune, Lost Girl (key of G). It incorporates lots of up the neck cross-picking and is a demonstration of how to take a simple melody and make it too hard to play…”

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then…

Happy Picking!
