Default youtube lessons

On YouTube Tim (don't know his last name) teaches the guitar parts (note for note, I think) of four Mandolin Orange songs, including "Golden Embers". His lessons are some of the clearest and most helpful I've encountered (paid or unpaid).

Mandolin Orange is my favorite band these days, with or without their bandmates. Both Andrew and Emily (when she's on guitar) seem to play on the inside strings a lot, which I find very appealing. (Obviously they're great on other instruments, and singing together, but in a guitar context it's that inside picking that strikes me, combined with a lot of minor chords and combination chords. It those are the right words.

I too would be interested in knowing more about their guitar technique; Andrew mentions being inspired by the Stanley Brothers, but that presumably doesn't apply to his guitar technique.
