    Nice energy and movement! Great sound. Makes me think of a Summit Artist that got way while I was thinking about it too long.

    Yes, great tune. A haunting Appalachian mode to me. Can anyone tell me what a partial fret is?

    This is by far the most interesting entry in this series so far. Yes, it takes a bit of an adjustment to start hearing it as not simply out of tune, but it's totally worth it on the other end! I love how what is a pretty straight forward fiddle tune can really expand your ears to the possibilities that exist beyond 12 tone equal temperament.

    Love this tune.

    Anyone know of lessons for this particular tune?

    This is something to ponder for certain.

    Microtonal has to grow on you a bit, but it does! Great job Flynn!

    Great to see you playing mandolin. Wonderful tune and performance. Too bad we don’t have banjo Tuesday and guitar Wednesday so folks could experience a little more

    Love the composition and the musicianship - both technical and very expressive

    Creative and fun. Thank you! And this is two weeks in a row for the mighty Collings MTO, I believe. Very cool.

    Great tune, great tone, great triplets, great way to start a Monday! I happened on his YouTube channel last week so it was especially fun to find Frederic here today. Now off score the transcript.

    Welcome, Frédéric. The Collings sounds fantastic.

    Nice tune! At first I couldn't understand why your K9 friend would leave such a prime spot before the end, but then I realized he was probably relocating so he had a better view of all that fancy finger work.

    Frankly, a good tune, well played. Always like Randy Wood's work as well!

    thanks for stopping in and playing for us Justin.
    I enjoy watching/listening to you with everything you play. amazing all around multi instrument player that is spot on with clean colorful notes.

  37. Alfons's Avatar
    Nice tune! That mando does indeed have a nice sound, but then I've noticed that pretty much any instrument you play tends to do that. I have had the privilege of seeing you and Sierra perform at the Frankfort Bluegrass Festival, and seeing you two play mandolins together is a real treat. I'm looking forward to being able to do it again.
  38. John Soper's Avatar
    That was a good one!

    Well played sir.
  40. Denny Gies's Avatar
    Impressive, thanks Justin.
  41. giannisgrass's Avatar
    Thanks Justin...that was awesome, you & Sierra must put out an album together, with mandolins & guitars..

    Wow, nice! Welcome, Justin.

    thanks for hanging out with us and sharing this tune. it has become a daily "break" for me to take a few minutes and go onto TMS site and just pick any mandolin to see if you have a video posted. enjoy your playing and high energy style.

    YIKES! That felt like the high score ball at the mercy of a pinball wizard - such a supple wrist.
    I may have to rest a while before I can listen to that another 2 or3 times.

    The three overlapping shadows behind you are a nice touch! This is an incredible composition that goes to some really interesting places.

    The cedar top does sound great. I've played a few and they've all been loud and awesome. Nice playing. Part III is my favorite.
