Peghead Nation instructors play a mandolin and guitar version of the jam-session favorite.

Peghead Nation fiddle instructor Chad Manning is a talented multi-instrumentalist, and while he was in the studio recording lessons for his Beginning/Intermedaite Fiddle and Bluegrass Fiddle courses, he took a run through the jam-session favorite “Whiskey Before Breakfast” on mandolin, joined by our co-founder and guitar instructor Scott Nygaard.
Chad is the fiddle player in David Grisman's Bluegrass Experience and the David Grisman Sextet, and in this video, he plays a Giacomel mandolin on loan from David.
Comments and Discussion
Thanks for the comment. There are a lot of different approaches to live recording. Do you already have recording gear and are only looking for a mic? I'd probably look for a stereo mic, like the Rode NT-4, for example, which would allow you to get a good basic sound without a lot of setup. Another approach would be to use a digital recorder with a built-in set of mics, like the Zoom H-6, which we use for the audio of many of our live performance videos.
