For mandolin pickers
My name is Brannam Smith. I am 18 yrs. old and I play mandolin in a bluegrass band called III Generation. Welcome to my site for mandolin pickers. I started playing mandolin when I was ten. John Moore when he was with the band California influenced me to start playing mandolin. I took lessons off and on for three years, now I give lessons. Mandolin is a great instrument that can produce all different kinds of sounds.
- Sam Bush (who I meet and he signed my mandolin)
- Ricky Skaggs (who I meet also and signed my mandolin)
- John Moore (who influenced me to start), and Chris Thile
- New Grass Revival (all of their albums)
- Tony Rice (all of them)
- Chris Thile (all of his stuff as well)
