Mandolin master John Reischman recorded his original tune “The North Shore” on his 1999 album Up in the Woods. It's a sweet minor-key waltz inspired by Bill Monroe compositions like “Lonesome Moonlight Waltz” and others. He and Peghead Nation co-founder and guitar instructor Scott Nygaard played this version together while John was in the studio recording lessons for his Melodic Mandolin Tunes course, in which he teaches “The North Shore” and other original and traditional tunes. You can also hear John and Scott play together in a trio with another Peghead Nation instructor, Sharon Gilchrist, on their recently released album, The Harmonic Tone Revealers.

It's great to listen and learn great musicians playing with respect and restraint, the latter of which is a quality that is often overlooked.
