Hello from Grinder Land

Filed under: Main,News — Tags: , — Chris @ 8:09 pm

As Inspector Kemp said in Young Frankenstein, “A riot is an ugly thing. Und … I think it is just about time that we had one!”

Well, we feel the same about our Sausage Grinder web posts, so today we have some fiddle and banjo lessons for you, plus the news that our album Delicious Moments is on sale for only $9.99. We know you already have one, but with wedding season getting underway why not buy several for gifts? Who really needs a set of guest towels anyway?

We’ll have some news on some gigs coming your way soon. Meanwhile, why not enjoy this?

Fiddle tunes from Jim Bowles

David taught these two fiddle tunes from Kentuckian Jim Bowles at the Los Angeles Old-Time Social last month. He plays the tunes up to speed and then gives ‘em to you slow with the bowing and a bunch of cool playing tips.

Christmas Eve — ADAE tuning — key of D

Kate’s Got a Wooden Leg — GDAE tuning — key of G


Find out about lessons from David on our contact page.

Banjo lesson: Dock Boggs’ Danville Girl

Here’s a banjo lesson — a full 20 minutes, thanks YouTube — on Dock Boggs’ banjo song Danville Girl. I taught this at the Los Angeles Old-Time Social last month, which was a bunch of fun. Hope you enjoy!
