Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Mike Compton has transcribed hundreds of Bill Monroe’s iconic mandolin tunes and solos, and he teaches many of them in his Monroe-Style Mandolin course on Peghead Nation. While he was in the studio recording a new batch of lessons, he played one of Monroe’s speedy mandolin showpieces, ”Rawhide,” backed by Peghead Nation co-founder and instructor Scott Nygaard.
