    Absolutely lovely! I'll be spending some serious time trying to transcribe this - unless there is an arrangement available?

    Richard is a great player....and a friendly guy! He turned me on to some nice classical duos by
    German composer, Kurt Schwaen

    Brilliant work, Mr. Kriehn! Thank you for sharing your arrangement of what Sir Paul has said is one of his favorite songs. You do it more than justice.

    A very nice and 'masterful' arrangement of the tune. Richard most always shows a relaxed and complete command of the instrument. He's definitely one of the top mandolin players in the world.

    Hi Mickey, nice chord melody version of Mr. Sandman. Looks like you have been playing the heck out of your Gibson!

    really great Jesse
    Thanks so much, Don! That means a lot. Hope we can play some tunes one of these days. And yeah, I figured you might notice Jethro lurking behind me, watching my every move, making me sweat...

    Jesse....Thanks for posting this one! Love this song and have never heard it played so great on solo Mandolin.
    Sounded fantastic!

    Wow! Love me some Hank Williams, and some chord melody. Now I love 'em together! Brilliant.

    Yowza. Beautiful playing and song selection. My fav Monday session in recent memory. When I consider exactly how I want a mandolin to sound...Jesse and that Nugget pretty much nail it.

    Very nice.

    Gabe has been to a couple of the Monroe Camps. Always a blast to have him in a jam there. What a fine young player! Kudos to David for featuring Gabe! And that Sullivan is a hoss.

    Great young talent and terrific tune. And that Sullivan is a keeper.

    Belmont University should be very proud.

    Thanks for posting!

    Nothing like a Gibson.
    Great tune.

    Thanks Pete! Nicely done. Cool tone you're getting out of that A2.

    Terrific and very sweet performance by a talented musician. She does justice to that fine sounding mandolin.

    Talented young lady!
    It will be great to see more of her success as she continues play!

    That's splendid playing. Luke makes it look easy. That's the mark of a real master. And the tone isn't just the instrument, I also play a Duff and, even though it's a fantastic instrument, I don't sound half so good.

    Snappy tune, well played. Stiver makes a fine mandolin. Thanks for posting.

    SO nice to see our mandocellos getting some love, Thanks Luke for doing it so well. More please!
  41. Alfons's Avatar
    Love the articulation
  42. tmsweeney's Avatar
    Really great playing by Luke, he has a lot of great solo mandocello videos out there.
  43. Jim Imhoff's Avatar
    Luke is one of the players and composers that contributed to my mandocello meets at CMSA conventions. His music and his playing are creative, nimble, and beautiful. He puts to rest the argument I hear so often (in the CBOM thread) that the mandocello is too difficult to play, the C string is too heavy, get an octave instead...etc. My teacher Fabio Giudice says that most people playing the MCello are mandolin players who picked it up for ensemble work, to fill out the quartet or orchestra. Luke is clearly a master of the instrument on its own terms, and is creating more music specifically for it; glad he is getting this recognition.

    Really enjoyed everything about that.

    Beautiful playing and composition. The tone of that instrument is fantastic and really used to its advantage here. Happy to know about Luke William Wright, I will be looking for more of his music.

    I am smitten by that mandocello tone. The piece and the playing are nice also.
  47. Don Grieser's Avatar
    Beautiful melody and playing. Gorgeous tone on that Duff cello.

    Good tune and fine playing. And what a mandocello!

    Really beautiful. LWW has really devoted himself to the instrument. A new year's treat.

    A lovely composition played with outstanding skill on an instrument with a beautiful, subtle voice makes a great way to start the new year—many thanks!
