Peghead Nation instructors John Reischman, Sharon Gilchrist, and Scott Nygaard, collectively known as Harmonic Tone Revealers, recently played a few concerts in Northern California, including an evening at the San Rafael home of guitarist Joe Helm. During that performance, they played this two mandolin, one guitar version of the traditional favorite “Sail Away Ladies.”

Sharon teaches this version of the tune, which she learned from fiddler Kenny Baker’s album Baker’s Dozen, in her Intermediate Bluegrass Mandolin course on Peghead Nation.

To learn mandolin with John, sign up for his course, Melodic Mandolin Tunes.

And get started on mandolin with Sharon’s courses, Beginning Mandolin and Intermediate Bluegrass Mandolin.

Learn guitar with Scott in any of his four courses: Roots and Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar, Intermediate Flatpicking Guitar, Flatpicking Guitar, or Weekly Guitar Workout.
