That is always a nice tune to hear.
Mandos 'are' rather violinish. Particularly as they are tunes exactly the same.
Your mandolin looks just like mine
I can't give much of a critique as it's early days on the mandolin for me, but I did like it.
Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of ..... What was I saying????
Toni and Ferret, Thanks for watching and listening and I am glad you liked it. Apart from playing it more smoothly and without obvious mistakes I have set myself the goal of playing it on my mandocello. Particular to Ferret; I have purchased a set of automotive feeler guages to do accurate measurements as per the ebook on mandolin setups ... bought new nut and saddle material and will craft guaged slot saws and remake the nut and saddle to get more uniform string spacings both for the benefit of my left hand and more accurate picking. Thanks again for the book.
