We don't often get treated to a video recording of the legendary Texas swing multi-instrumentalist, Johnny Gimble on mandolin (better documented for his fiddle mastery), but our friend Scott Tichenor caught this gem yesterday on the artist's May 30th birthday. Some great stuff and many might not know that he played his electric mandolin with a CGDA tuning. Check out the 40 second solo at around 1:05.
