Happy Spring and welcome to the April/May issue of Mandolin Sessions®!

This time around Seth Austen provides a cross-tuned version of Sourwood Mountain. Ted Eschliman further explores the Lydian world. Dix Bruce gives us the first of a two-part article on playing in multiple keys using the classic Back Home in Indiana as a vehicle. Joe Mendel interviews luthier Graham McDonald. Michael Gregory challenges us with an attractive Irish reel. Wendy Anthony gives us another must know – Seneca Square Dance. And finally, to commemorate the release of Mel Bay’s School of Mandolin: Irish Mandolin by Michael Gregory and me, I share a fun story and a great new tune. Enjoy!
