Nick Dumas is a mando player’s player–he’s as classy as they come, with technique and taste for days! In this first lesson in our Picker Case Study with Nick, he’ll talk technique, gear, and what he’s been up to. We start off the lesson with one of his originals, “Fish Caught a Bird,” and will teach it later in the course. Enjoy!

That’s awesome that Nick has shared the tab for this one with us, one of my favorite songs on the album. Thanks for posting this one!

Nick is a genuinely nice guy and a great teacher in addition to being a great mandolin player. I purchased his album at cabin camp and it is one of my favorites. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
