John Reischman and Scott Nygaard have each produced a lot of influential music over the years, and together, they treated us all to the 2015 album Harmonic Tone Revealers, with their fellow Peghead Nation instructor Sharon Gilchrist. That aptly named outing is a virtuosic showcase of the tone and taste that they’re all well-known for, so be sure to give that record a spin or two

John was recently in the Peghead Nation studio recording lessons for his popular Melodic Mandolin Tunes course, and took a moment to play the bluegrass classic “In the Pines” with his fellow Revealer. Scott teaches this tune in his Intermediate Flatpicking Guitar course, so jump in there to add this song to your repertoire.
