Cuckoo's Nest - Chris Thile's version of an Irish Hornpipe - Advanced

This is one of the tunes that made me want to pick up the mandolin way back in 2004; it's the Irish Hornpipe called 'Cuckoo's Nest', as played by Chris Thile & Nickel Creek. Aimed at advanced players, in this lesson we'll learn the core melody and then look at the embellishments that Thile adds to take this tune to the next level.
