    Effectively mutilated indeed. Certainly the playing was cool and effective. Nice job.

    Indeed. The mando might be 'mutilated', but I think it sounds very effective. He seems quite a cool character altogether, judging from the range of music he's been involved in.

    Wow, great touch. I remembered Daniel's name from a very long time ago, as in a high school student that wrote a paper in 1998 that got shared on this site. Hadn't looked at it in years. Had to use Google to find it.

    Fabuloso! Danilo's playing and arrangements never fail to make me exclaim out loud. This song is just one of 12 beautiful reasons to track down Sem Restrições from 2008. Fantastic music. Also not to be missed is Danilo's visit to the NPR Tiny Desk series:

    NICE! Of course we come for the mandolin, but the vocals were great! Really enjoyed the whole thing. Nice playing, and that is a fine sounding mando too. Thanks.

    That was great Jacob! Aside from the illustrations being amazing, It's crazy how accurate you got their right hand picking angles perfect...

    I think a 'self portrait' is in order for such fine playing.

    Great chops on a fine tune, Spencer. Keep up that great building tradition inherited from Gerald, (greatly missed). #136 sounds better every year. Hope to see you playing out, too.

    that was great!
    smooth, clear and resonant playing.
    the mandolin looks great also, love that color.

    Brilliant. I had lessons from Evan a few years ago - he’d just graduated from University with a music degree and was already flying. I remember him saying “when I find something I can’t do on the mandolin I practice and practice it until I can do it”
