Release of Album Pickin’

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP and celebrated mandolinist David “Dawg” Grisman have joined forces on a new collaborative album entitled, Pickin’ – available in stores and all digital retailers on Friday, November 3. This marks the first recorded collaboration between these two acoustic titans and arrives on Grisman’s own label, Acoustic Disc. Pickin’ reflects on both Tommy and David’s signature classical, Americana, folk, and roots stylings, but it also artfully merges jazz rhythms, jamming, and unpredictability in the mix.


Dawgmatism + Dawgma – Two related Compositions by David…

David Grisman has created his own style of music called Dawg-Music. In this style he has combined elements of swing and bluegrass. Many pieces composed by David Grisman contain the word “Dawg” in its name, like the two compositions Dawgmatism and Dawgma.

Both pieces are based on the same harmonies and have almost the same melody, Dawgmatism is a slow piece, while Dwagma is played fast and with a steady rhythm. The harmonies of the first part are also the same harmonies as in the jazz classic Autumn Leaves, the chords of the second part are very interesting and fit well for the mandolin.
