    Awesome playing and that mandolin is not to bad either.

    There may be several mandolins show up for sale after people view this one!

    Very beautiful tune David! l like all your delicate slide ornaments that shines through in this solo version.

    Nice tune - My order is in! Hopefully someday I can try a cup at its namesake. It was great to meet you at the Frankfort fest, and see Mile Twelve. I will also add my appreciation for Mando Mondays - strange to imagine, but it seems like I can remember a time when I didn't necessarily look forward to Mondays.

    Beautiful composition, David. Thanks for hosting this series and making it happen all over the internet, not just on the Cafe. Looking forward to the release of your new solo recording.

    A very pretty and emotive song, Mr Otsuka. Thank you.

    It's so refreshing to hear a master that isn't trying to impress you with a blizzard of 64th notes. The beauty of this piece is it's quiet simplicity.

    What a beautiful piece of music! Welcome, Akira Otsuka. Great to see and hear your music here.

    I think I would want to be greedy and learn 10-15 seconds of it.

    Holy cats that was great.

    I'd like to learn just 5 seconds of that.

    Thanks so much for sharing this Aaron.

    I've very much enjoyed Daniel's discography, though it's not as well known this side of the Pacific. His CDs Voyages and Esquisses are exquisite! Great to hear from you, Daniel!

    Thanks everyone for your kind words! I am very honored to be part of mandolin mondays. And I´m glad to hear people are still enjoying Waltz of the Dreams. You gave me an idea to make a tutorial for that one on my youtube channel. Coming up!
