Joe K. Walsh was in the Peghead Nation studio recently, recording lessons for his new Bluegrass Mandolin Jam Favorites course. During the shoot, Joe and Peghead Nation co-founder and guitar instructor Scott Nygaard played a great version of the Bill Monroe tune,“Watson’s Blues.” As Bill tells the story, he came up with the tune during a tour that he and Doc Watson were on, and Doc contributed the signature guitar lick that occurs throughout the tune.
