New arrangement: Wanted Dead or Alive, Bon Jovi

Per request of tablature subscriber Barry Hines, I’ve arranged Bon Jovi’s Wanted Dead or Alive for mandolin.  It’s a great choice for mandolin.  This is not an arrangement of the full song, but all the parts are there.  Love Sambora’s playing on it and the solo, though not a note for note transcription, pays homage […]
