Discuss the Mandolin lesson: The Old Rugged Cross



This one isn’t fast, but it’s nuanced and challenging. The slow tempo still requires some lightening fast transitions that are really fun to play. And how do you beat this ol’ melody?


Ben, you’re a music genius! Simply Beautiful, Thank you from great heart Master of the Strings.


I’ll jump into this one, I love the slow songs! Excellent!!!


I’ve impressed both my wife and myself while working on this one. I may play it in church with our pastor on guitar. Thank you Ben, your site is fantastic!


You’re welcome, and I’m so glad you’re enjoying it!


This song has a bit of everything; tremolo, double stops, and as an added bonus, it’s a timeless classic!


This a beautiful rendition of the classic hymn that has called people to the pulpit for generations. It is the first song I remember in church, as a little East Texas boy.

Thanks for posting it. :slight_smile:
