Hi there,

I've been working quite a bit on a project lately and I'd be really grateful to have your opinion about it.

At first, I wanted to make live videos but a friend who helped me in that process suggested to record first and then make a montage from different shots. So here it is...

Feel free to comment. Thanks in advance.

A third song is in this playlist (https://soundcloud.com/hark-699426945/sets/hark2018) and there should be more in the weeks to come.

Fabian, very creative arrangements there. Great voice, wonderful tone and fine playing. I like hearing fresh versions of these tunes, which were made sort of iconic to my ears years ago with the harmonies of CSN and Simon & Garfunkel. You've gone in a different direction that sounds to me a bit like "alternative pop", or whatever you might call Dave Matthews' style of airy, understated jazzy comps and smoky lyrics.

Congratulations.

To embed a video, you've got to klick on the third icon (seen from the right) in the second row.(Insert Video)
Apart from what Mark already mentioned, your mandolin sounds wonderful.
May I ask, what brand and model it is? A flat-top, isn't it?

Thank you Marc, thank you crisscross, for your feedback and appreciation. That means a lot!

This mandolin was built by a Canadian luthier, Peggy White (http://www.peggywhite.ca/).

I tried the "insert video" button, but nothing appeared... :-/
