    You might get more answers if you actually posted a message on the forum as opposed to a blog post and including pictures of the tuners will be a big help.

    Too marvelous for words! (I think that's another song.) The amount of time, skill, and effort that went into producing this quiet marvel is astounding and much appreciated.

    Great. I always love hearing Eva Scow, and it's always enjoyable to watch a musician who clearly loves making music.

    Ms. Scow makes it look easy but she's not fooling me. Very musical.

    Great job, David! Nice tone, even at that tempo, and so clean. I know just enough to understand something about the focus required for that. And very inventive too. The couple of instances where you add a little extra tension really sets it off, and a few b3rds scattered around, some chromaticism, it all seemed very intentional...I listened to it three times.

    I kept listening for the "bebop phrasing" but couldn't hear it, so i printed off the PDF. Nope, straight 8ths except for those syncopated beginning phrases that are just typical old-time fiddler, and not a rest anywhere in the piece, much less an 8th rest, and all the phrases are pretty even. I'll keep looking.

    What a great tune! As always, wonderful picking!! Thanks for sharing, David!

    Ah David, as a band mate said to me nearly 30 years ago after a rather extravagant fiddle break, "stick to the melody son". Nice job even with the Bebop phrasing.

    Beautiful, and you’ve raised the bar for Mandolin Mondays cinematography

    Sweet, Marie! I must start practicing more. Thank you.

    Big smiles all around when she plays the 'almost corny' theme. I'm smiling too! And look how she holds the 'bowl back' mandolin. I'd drop the thing on the first position change. Brian's mandolin really sings in Marie's hands.
