    Many thanks, Manfred! Now, back to camping!!!

    Would it suit the hornpipe style more to pick the individual triplets, or use hammers-ons and pull-offs for those notes?
  5. Eddie Sheehy
    mix and match - variety is the best use of ornamentation.

    I know this one! I hope to get time to record it soon. I have been busy the last while with a new job, moving house and a new baby imminent. In the meantime here's an oldie."

    I really enjoyed the version by Barbara's band that Eddie posted. It was fun to play along with and helped me learn the tune. Pedyrmac, that was a nice medley on the banjo. It looks like there is something posted below it, but it is not showing up for me.

    I love hornpipes! This is so tempting ...

    I'm so impressed with all those backing tracks that you use. Are these multi-track recordings, or do you play back over speakers while recording the lead?

    Great effort, Laura. I hoped you would be doing the triplet-laden version.
    I have been working on that one too, but so far I have to play it very slowly to be able to do the triplet barrages in the third part in single notes.

    Gelsenbury, most of my recent posts are multi-track recordings. When I first started posting on the cafe I typically played a backing track through my speakers while I recorded the lead on video.

    Very nice hammer-ons Laura. This is the Session version with syncopation.

    Nice, Maudlin.
    Is this a new mandolin?
    Where is your tie?

    Same old Gremlin, Manfred, but with a new golden tailpiece.
    Please pardon the attire; I had just been indulging in some sporting activity.

    Nice playing Laura, Maudlin and peddyrmac. I haven't posted in a while, so I'm going to get back in the saddle with this one. Peddyrmac, thats some catalogue of change in your life! I wish you the very best with all of it, especially your baby.

    Great work on this finger buster everyone. And I'll second the congratulations on your new baby Peddyr.
    That is one killer arrangement, Francis. I hope I can get my fingers moving that quickly someday.

    That's great Francis. And a very brisk tempo for the triplets.

    OK, here is my go at it. I'm traveling so this was shot in a hotel room in Memphis (there could be a song in that...). The triplets kicked my you know what! This was a good one for the song of the week though.

    Laura,

    what a beautiful version. I am going to have to try and 'borrow' your phrasing for this one in future.
