Aaron Weinstein is having a big year. He was recently named as one of Downbeat’s Rising Stars in the venerable publication’s 2019 critic’s poll, and he has a new album called 3x3, which is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.  And his popular Peghead Nation course, Chord Melody Mandolin with Aaron Weinstein was released a few months ago, much to the delight of the mandolin community.
 
This continues a thriving music career in which Aaron has worked with countless music luminaries, from Les Paul to Bucky Pizzarelli to Jay Geils and Skitch Henderson. In this special Peghead Nation bonus video, Aaron reveals the single most important lesson he has learned along the way. Thank you, Aaron, for shedding light on this important topic.

Wearing a bow tie is a sign of sophistication and breeding. Everything he says in this video is true. I used to wear one, and forgot how to tie them, but may start again. Maybe I will sign up for his course!
