The “Live From Home” Initiative: Chris Thile Plays Gillian Welch’s “Hard Times”
Chris Thile says, “I’ll do this song much too fast…” and yes, indeed, he does. Chris must be the scariest mandolin player who has ever lived, and he’s never been scarier than in this one. And also, too, he sings expressively while maintaining an incredibly accurate and fast tempo. Just amazing stuff.
(Now if somebody would please ask him to do these videos in landscape mode, it would be perfect.)
