Best Mandolin player alive
    #376701 - 03/02/10 10:15 AM (6 years, 9 months ago)

Potentially the best to ever live. Hard to say with an instrument that's 400 years old, but it's very hard to imagine somebody playing better than this.

he plays the main melody line from "song for a young queen" a couple times and then just shits in our brain with some improv for awhile. it's incredible to me that anyone can make up music like that on the spot :eek:

He is pretty good. I'll give him that. However, go look at some old bluegrass. Those guys are fuckin out of this world, seriously.

Those fuckin things are hard as shit to play too. I've been playing guitar for like 11-12 years and I picked one up one day thinkin it couldn't be THAT much different from an axe. Wrong. Good post though, that guy definitely isn't bad.

dude NO way. I'm obsessed with bluegrass and I promise I've seen all the old school players pick the mandos, they don't even compare to chris thile! Who are you referring to specifically? Bill Monroe, Marty Stuart, Jesse McRenolds?

Thile is by far more musically talented, and by far more dexterous with his fingers than any of those guys. The only one who I think could possibly compare is Mike Marshall, but even he has admitted that Thile blows HIS mind.

Ok he totally fuckin murders it in that video, hands down.

I don't know exact names, but it was from some OLD bluegrass vids I was watchin one day on Youtube. Old guys on the mando just fuckin goin bananas. It MIGHT have been in a Tony Rice video, I'm not sure. You ever listen to him?

yep, I've seen tony rice live probably 15-20 times :grin:

Like I said, I'm OBSESSED with bluegrass. I've played the mandolin and classical violin since 3rd grade so bluegrass just enraptures me with the musical virtuosity and the amazing expression that's possible with just acoustic instruments. Plus, Colorado is one of the bluegrass capitals of the world so there are TONS of amazing festivals all summer here with the best bluegrass musicians alive so I'm totally spoiled by it :grin:

You've seen Rice live that many times?

Well, you seem cool and all, but I'm going to have to enter your brain and confiscate all of your memories and visuals of the show :shrug:. Sorry man.

Fucker, :lol:

He just came where I live at like a few months ago, but I couldn't make it to the show:nonono: In retrospect, I should've fuckin called out of work or whatever to go. That guy is a fuckin master. A friend of mine's dad has met him and played with him n shit, he can play like all his songs perfect on guitar, I mean seriously, perfect. How were the shows?

Dude incredible. You nailed it with how fucking amazing he is, he never messes up and just completely shreds every single lick he plays.

There's a couple annual festivals out here, Telluride and Rockygrass that I've gone to every year for like 10 years now, so that's why I've seen him so many times. The number of times I've seen him is probably even higher when you count how many times he's played with like 3-4 different groups at a single festival.

next time he's in town you should drop whatever you're doing and go see him. There are very few people to ever live that can compare with his skill and mastery of the guitar

Yeah they've got bluegrass festies about 3-4 hours from where I live. I didn't make it last year, but I'm going this year. He usually comes to those.

I've never heard a flat note, or any mistake for that matter from him. Like seriously, I think he just picked up the guitar when he was like 8 or 9, and just killed it then too. He's fuckin like...:awebig: I can't fathom the talent he has, it's ridiculous. I've got to see him live. Too bad he can't sing anymore, didn't he have throat cancer or something like that?

:rofl:



Fuckin flawless. That is one of the most beautiful and soothing peaces of music I've ever heard. I can almost visualize the sun rising in the morning over the mountains in the Shenandoah Valley and the smell of mist and fresh grass in the air. :crying:

He plays a 1938 Martin guitar. That's like the holy grail of acoustics. Bitch plays so smooth and effortlessly.

It's a Gordon Lightfoot piece.

I've started a couple threads about him in the past, but they never really took off. Glad to see someone else up here that likes bluegrass. He's got a lot of good shit on youtube.

He's one of the most talented musicians I've ever heard. Haven't been listening to him that much lately, glad you made this thread man. Changed my mood for the good just hearing this stuff. He just puts the songs together so flawlessly. The transitions are so smooth n shit. His brother Wyatt rips too.

And Alison Krauss is very beautiful. And that studio they're all in is :awebig:

amen to all that. Alison's voice kinda weirds me out but she's got great musical style. Fun fact, the guy playing the mando in that video did Georgy Clooney's singing voice in "O Brother, Where Art Thou" :awesome:

Have you ever heart of Bryan Sutton? If you like Guitar you NEED to hear him

GOTDAMN!!!

That's definitely a better representation of that mando player. You shoulda put that video up first. That guitar player is just fucking killing it. People don't understand how much harder that is on an acoustic than an electric guitar. Bluegrass gets my blood pumping like no other music man. That shit just gets me amped dude. The musicianship is out of this world.

:rockon:

Come to think of it, I think a buddy of mine showed me that mando player a while back, but I can't remember if it was him or someone else. That guy definitely rips though.

Buncha pickin motherfuckers man :awedance:

This was like 2-2 1/2 hours away from me.



Is that the same guy, Chris Thile in this vid? It kinda looks like him.

:rofl: Tony was headbanging at 4:55-4:56.
