The mandolin is not as often used for accompaniment of songs as the ukulele. So I am always happy when I find examples for a mandolin used by singers for accompaniment.
Bonnie Sims has made a set of videos where she sings and accompanies herself with the mandolin.
You can also find a set of videos of Bonnie’s band Bonnie & the Clydes where she plays the guitar and also the mandolin.
Have fun with Bonnie Sims!
“Pumped Up Kicks” Acoustic Mandolin Cover
For my bestbestie in the whole world, Jamie. Learned it because I heard it in her car and this song is awesome and so catchy.
Pretty Fair Maid
A song I love to play on the mandolin, that my good friend and fellow Bonnie, Bonnie Hancock, asked me to make a video of like 100 years ago. So I finally did! Thanks for watching 🙂 T-shirt is compliments of Idlewhile, another local Longmont band you should totally google and check out!!
