    Good job!

    - I've never had the discipline ( like other folk/bluegrass-style players), to learn the worked-out fiddle tune or reel like this, like so many guitar/banjo/fiddle/mandolin do. So I just 'wing it' when playing something like this, with others -lazy!

    The mandolin is 'the little big' instrument! It has a great tone that really cuts through

    I have no desire to play one, but love playing with one. Either in our loose bluegrass group ( we skew bluesy, not super-traditional), or just me on guitar and mandolin- love the space and sound of just the two

    Mandolin sounds deceptively simple to play- but often, it's really not :)

    Nice Blowtorch. Kind of Irish Washer Womanish. Mando is not so easy for me.

    Nice Blow Torch. I love a well played mando. When I try the grandkids say it sounds like Japanese music. It can be a discouraging instrument.

    Good job - looked like a normal-sized mando, though.
