Lonesome River Band - Heartless Love

Should it just happen that you are the one bluegrass mandolin fan who doesn't yet own a copy of "Carrying the Tradition" by the Lonesome River Band, face up to the inevitable now and make the purchase. You will not be disappointed.

Here is a transcription - in a TablEdit file this time - of Dan Tyminski's solo on Heartless Love. For my money, you can't do a better bluesy mandolin solo than this, so I don't know why Dan bothered to learn to play all those other instruments and sing so well too.

If you're anything like me, this will take at least a week or so to get under your fingers, so don't get discouraged.

Finally, here is a YouTube of it:

  1. I just got a hold of the album and listened to Heartless Love...it's a great solo. There is a lot of Monroe in there, but at the same time it is very fresh and original. Seems like he is playing a lot within the chord position - basic stuff that sounds oh so good. I really like the play with the rhythm at 1:05. Thanks for posting the tab...I am going to check it out.
