Locking Doors (Exclusive, Single)
by Chris Thile
Released: Oct 2004
Label: Welk Music Group
Nickel Creek's Chris Thile prefaces this outstanding conceptual song with a story about how he came to write it by playing a constructive songwriting game on the tour bus with his band. His mandolin solo is so superhumanly dexterous that the sheer speed of it may give you a seizure if you try to follow every single note.
