    You played it very fluently! The intonation on your mandolin is not perfect. I think you have to move the bridge a little upwards to the neck. Other than that, you played it very well!
  3. gortnamona
    thanks Hendrik, you could be right , ive only just changed strings, its possible i could have moved the bridge slightly.

    Great display of triplet playing there, G. Hendrik, your ear outperforms mine, I have to admit, but I have age on my side as an excuse!

    Well played Frithjof. Brave of you to attempt this, I’m still nervous about attempting that many triplets in one measure!

    Nice one Frithjof!
  18. Frithjof
    Thanks for all the nice comments.
    The triplet cascade within the B part was a real challenge. But to accept a challenge is a good starting point to learn something new, isn’t it?

    Frithjof, that's praise from high quarters indeed from Jill and Lawrence, and it's well deserved. Well played! And I like the shirt, too.
