I am probably the odd guy out as I fingerpick the things.

But a guy who I enjoy the heck out of is Jim Richter. How can you not love somebody who plays Chuck Berry on the mando.

Mandolin just ain't my 'thang.

You can play blues on any instrument.

But it ain't always the sound I want to hear.

There are some great contemporary players too - Andra Faye and Rich DelGrosso I've been listening to lately.

The "trick" with Blues on a mandolin seems to be tuning low - getting away from those shrill tones and into the Blues zone where things sound a little more like a human voice.

I love bending on a mandolin, too - the twin strings go out of tune with each other, very expressive.

Blues mandolin.

What would Muddy say?


Texas Blues, If I was Muddy (oddly I never been mistaken for him) I would say
check out Johnny Young and Yank Rachel
Yes folks the mandolin is a BLUES instrument. urban blues (Johnny Young) and country blues (Yank Rachel).

Posting this just to clarify "Nice Fender Mandolin" since so many of those are real dogs.


The National is the real prize, plays like butter and sounds like nothing else in the world, old and new, low fi like a cigar box and rich with Jazzness at the same time.

The Fender has a great character - each string really rings out separately, almost sounds like there's a chorus or something on it.

The Gretsch would be nice if I wanted to hit someone with a mandolin.



Mostly have them tuned a step low, Yank Rachell style. Surprised there's not more Blues mandolin out there.
