Over The Waterfall

Here is a great version of a great tune I witnessed first hand at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in upstate NY in 2011. Over the waterfall is a great tune, and one of the first tunes I learned. Finding the video of Chris Thile playing it at Grey Fox over a year later, it has sparked my interest in the tune again. Of course, he adds his Thileisms to the tune, but it made me think that over the waterfall would be a great tune to make a lesson for. So stay tuned!

Also, check out the crazy fingerpicking he does starting a little after 4:25. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there is no denying he knows how to navigate around a mandolin!
