    There has been no bottleneck playing for a long time so here is a Mississippi Fred McDowell classic in GDGD tuning.

    Maudlin, that's good stuff. I haven't heard bottleneck mandolin before

    I always wondered what playing style resonator mandolins were made for. This is it. You must try that on a RM-1.

    Authentic feeling, strong right hand finger picking and nice vibrato. Next time set the cam on monochrome modus, please.

    What a novel use of a mandolin, maudlin. I love the sound and the tuning which gives you those bar chords. Lyrics sound pretty good too! Just off now to retune a mando.

    That's just too cool. You got the Mississippi Fred McDowell groove goin' on there, great stuff!

    I second Frith's monochrome idea - tinted in light sepia would be exactly right.

    That's really good Maudlin - the bottleneck works surprisingly well on the mandolin.

    I can't offer anything with mandolin content but I have previously recorded this on guitar. Probably the most interesting thing about my version is that it's played on a classical guitar that I bought for 10 from a car boot sale - seemed to be in the spirit of the blues.

    Great blues sound, James. You should get together with MM and form a duo. Maudlin is such a great name too for a bluesman!
