    The Czechs are a fun bunch. They say they are all musicians. There are several conservatories in Prague.

    Big right hand and a bit of Monroe in there. Very nice, Jan. Whoa, almost missed that electric bit. Love it!

    1. Your measured tremolo is so good!
    2. Love the left hand vibrato.
    3. The 32nd notes runs - so clean!
    4. the Brazilian "duo style' is quite beautiful!
    5. 4'30" the triplet accompaniment is exquisite!
    6. Exceptionally gorgeous playing over-all. Thank you!

    1. Harmonics are super clean!
    2. Very nice rhythmic drive!
    3. Like the muted pizzicato at 1:11.
    4. Sound is very clear and well articulated throughout the ranges.
    5. 2'45" I notice the reverb a little too much. Also on the final chords.
    6. Overall, a very accomplished and musical performance! Congratulations!

    Wonderful playing, as always, Florian. I liked how you utilized the acoustics for dynamic variation, too.
    *I'd be interested to hear how a Loar would fare in this setting.

    Very nice playing and a very nice mandolin. The acoustics in the recording were a bit distracting but I did enjoyed the music.

    I came in expecting House of the Rising Sun. A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

    Absolutely beautiful! Signing up for the master class!!

    Heck yeah! I've had the great good luck to see Thile live twice in the past three weeks for outdoor solo shows. The new record should be a treat.
  45. Alfons's Avatar
    Oh yeah! Beautiful composition and playing. I vote for Brian's "Couch surfing on the event horizon".

    Unlike Cheryl, I did not quite get every note right - if only we had that pick information...
  46. mugbucket's Avatar
    "The 10 Fret Stretch", or "Have Fun Transposing This to Am".

    Thanks Mr. Thile, keep them coming.
  47. BrianWilliam's Avatar
    How about “Couch surfing on the event horizon”?

    What pick are you using?
  48. Mike Romkey's Avatar
    Now that was a surprise! Happy 250th. My how time flies.

    I don't know how I was able to play every note right along with Chris, in unison, the first time through.
    Thank you, Chris, for gorgeous, creative, piece and for doing Mandolin Monday!
