About Dylan McCarthy

We all decided to pick up the mandolin because we were inspired by the playing of others. Sam Bush, David Grisman, Bill Monroe, Sierra Hull, Ronnie McCoury, the list goes on. They all bring something different to the table and we are all drawn to different players for different reasons. How do they get their sound? What makes them unique?

My goal with this Patreon is to share with you my growing collection of mandolin solo transcriptions in the world of bluegrass and related styles. By putting these solos under a microscope, we can better understand what makes our favorite players sound the way they do and how we can work towards achieving that in our own playing. Plus it's a ton of fun! I hope you'll join me in a weekly study of the playing of our heroes.

My name is Dylan McCarthy, I'm a professional musician and teacher from Lyons, CO. I have over 20 years of experience playing and performing in the US and internationally. In 2019, I won the RockyGrass Mandolin Competition and in 2020 I released my debut album of original mandolin tunes called Lost & Found. I am a devoted student of the mandolin and I love sharing that with others.
