    Lark in the Morning is real wistful :) - gonna go look up its history- but I have to ask: What is the 1st melody instrument? and is there an FX that makes the tone/attack/whatever sound alto flute-like or maybe recorder-like? confused, then 1:20 I'm pretty sure it's a string instrument.

    I'm gonna be embarrassed if it IS a wind instrument

    I love fiddle tunes. Recognized both. Mandolin?

    Thanks for listening. Lark has electric mandolin - a Ryder EM44 through a Richter 5E3 amp (I think I put a vibe pedal on, too?). I thought it sounded a little like a pennywhistle, actually. The acoustic mando on both tracks is a Gibson A0 (1916). (And the acoustic guitar is a Taylor 414.)

    "Jaybird" has a fun careless bounce to it." Lark In The Morning" has a Boston Irish folk vibe to it
    and both of these I enjoyed listening too.

    Sounded very pennywhistleish! Nice work

    Remixed Jaybird (gave it a different name to keep the tracks straight).
