    Excellent! And I love the added sound of the percussive instrument on his ankle.

    Wonderful! I love hearing regional folk music applied to non-regional instruments. Love the vocal, too! A rare treat on MM! And I hear hints of Squirrel Hunters!
    Peace, Todd

    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.

    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.

    I think I heard that Fern saying "not only can he play, but he's a good listener too!".
    Well done - a very enjoyable performance.

    I really love this tune and your technique is so strong and clean! Your Fern is a really great one. I can tell you practice with a metronome, your timing is fantastic.
