Whether it be on his own or in groups like The Punch Brothers and the old Nickel Creek, i find this guy fascinating to watch.

I know some people say he's a bit of a showman, but you can't help admire the talent of the guy. If i hadn't have heard Hayke Orvis first, Chris would have been the one who would have influenced my mandolin purchase.

I'm just working on the basic chords of my new mandolin, but i'll get there one day.




This one from the 4:20 mark is amazing....



An old one...



Any other mandolin players here?

He sooooo good!

I heard he was classically trained.
And I especially like his duets with that guitar player...

I play guitar and am learning flatpickin' as a new kick.
So much fun!


Great vids thanks!

I think he was just born that good.....look at this when he was about 12...he even wiggles the same way when he plays lol....



Good luck with the flatpicking, i've been playing the acoustic guitar for about a year now, self taught so loads of bad habits probably, only just started trying it with a pick and really struggled with it.

I'm trying new fingerpicking patterns at the moment, baby steps and all that.
