For mandolinists

Tristan Scroggins (seen over here several times in his father's band Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, and most recently filling in on mandolin with Chris Jones & the Night Drivers in their 2019 tour) has transcribed all the mandolin breaks on the classic 1979 Tony Rice album Manzanita - breaks originally played by Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs, and David Grisman.

His transcriptions are now available on an e-book via his Patreon account. More details (including a vivid recollection of the impact of Manzanita when it first came out) are in John Lawless's feature on Bluegrass Today.
