Jake Workman - Landmark - new album

Y’all, go buy Jake’s latest album, it’s awesome! It’s an all instrumental bluegrass album, and every single track is pure awesomeness! Sierra Hull plays all the mandolin except one track which Ricky Skaggs plays on, Russ Carson covers the banjo, Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Justin Moses on dobro, Jeff Picker on bass, Jeff Taylor on accordion and whistle, Rebekah Workman plays fiddle on one track, and the guitar is obviously played by Jake Workman.
This album is well worth the few bucks it costs, you won’t regret buying it!

I just got that album a few days ago; it’s great! That version of Pike County Breakdown is incredible!

I just shocked myself… I played banjo along with pike Co. Breakdown on the banjo, and I easily kept up :exploding_head::exploding_head::scream: like, wow! I knew I could pick it pretty fast, but I’m still quite shocked (and excited, obviously) :joy:

Landmark is the best!!! I’ve taken lessons with Jake and he’s given me some of the TAB from that album. Great songs! I got a chance to pick with him in January - he’s amazing!

How awesome is that video. You sounded fantastic @Flatpickin_Libby. It was impressive how you took some guidance mid-picking from Jake. Jake is one of my favorites, I’ve never gotten to meet him but he seems like a really good guy. Thanks so much for sharing that memory!

Hey Libby, great to have you here. I saw that video on YouTube a while back, it’s fantastic. You’ve got some chops girl and I know that has to be a kick playing with Jake, he’s a great guy.

I can’t stop playing White House Bounce. Such a catchy melody.

I think my favorite on that album is Hickory Snow. Such a beautiful tune with some really interesting guitar work out of the E position.

We’re you able to write out a chart for that one?
