I just recorded a lady last week singing Wayfaring Stranger. I put down a simple melody line on the mandolin and got some pretty clean sounds. I used my Weber Yellowstone for this one.

MJ-384 into an API 512 on the neck.
C414 XLS into a Neve 1073 for the body.

Working in the tremelo without coming out cheesey or flubbing it along the way is so difficult for me. You did a great job. Nice tone too.

Me likey!

Great job on one of my all time favorite songs. I've heard this overplayed by some. To me the message is in the lyrics, the instruments should have a supporting, not a leading role, and I think you captured that sentiment.

Great job from me as well. I picked what I could from Sam Bush's version. Another tune that has more than a few similarities is "Flatbush Waltz" by Andy Statman. Check it out.
