    Nice version, Jack. I went to your you tube link and listened to the version with words - I like it! Sounds like the words could have been there all along.

    Sweet. Very tasty. Also liked the Islands in the Stream video, and look forward to the arrival of Cover Story tomorrow. Gotta love the Cafe and Mandolin Mondays. Many thanks to all.

    Another forum I go to bans altogether besmirching businesses. Or at least naming them. I think it's probably ok to vent a bit - (I ordered a pick, and six weeks later it still hasn't arrived ... no names, no pack drill, just a vent. Hopefully, you get a bit of 'yeah, that's bad, hope it works out', but some people feel a bit better after venting). On another forum, a post went up stating that the poster hadn't had any response from a well-known local company. Turned out the respected owner was dying of cancer. You just never know.

    HOT DOG! You old trickster! Notice the left hand plucked notes while the right hand is doing its thing!

    Awesome!

    Everyone should listen to the Aonzo/Gambetta colaborations „Serenata“ and „Traversata“.

    This video clearly shows how the right arm is relaxed and not pressing on the instrument or bridge. It is always a pleasure to see Carlo play.
