While Flynn Cohen was in the studio recording new lessons for his Irish Backup Guitar course at the beginning of the year, Peghead Nation Irish Mandolin instructor Marla Fibish stopped by to play melody on some of Flynn’s lessons, and they played a few sets of tunes to warm up.

In this video, Flynn and Marla play two reels, “The Famous Ballymote” and “The Morning Star,” with Flynn playing the melody.
