    Oh this tune is expertly played! The relaxed tremolos are to die for. The back up guitar propels the song along to its beautiful conclusion. Thanks for this Jairo.

    Very pretty Jairo! Everything. I'm curious how you made this, swapping tracks, live,?? Does anyone else hear, " In The Good Old Summertime" in there?

    Frank, Jay Buckey produced some years ago a series of 11 books called "The Bluegrass Mandolin", In the Garden is in book 11. Each book has the scores with an average of 16 pieces, each one with its backing track at different bpm, etc. What I do is learn the song, and over the years I already add a touch of my own to Jay's original arrangement. In The Good Old Summertime is in that plethora of arrangements, it's quite a lighthearted piece, and it's funny that you mention it because I'm learning it...
    And well I hope you forgive me for this long post ...

    Your tremolo is a pleasure to listen to as usual, Jairo! The sound quality you achieve using a webcam micro is very good.

    Thanks Jairo for introducing this tune! I searched the sheet music and found it in the New OrleansTune Book:
    As is my habit, I watched some other versions on Youtube to get an idea what to do with a tune. Usually. the tunes in this book are either played by Dixieland bands or sung by singers like Frank Sinatra. But In the Garden, which was written in 1912 by C. Austin Miles, appears in many C&W versons by Alan Jackson, Randy Travis...But since I own no pedal steel, I played it like this:

    Well performed on mandolin and guitar, Christian.

    Two different but equally appealing interpretations of this lovely tune, Jairo and Christian. Beautiful video once again, Christian.
    Jairo, I am impressed by the quality of recording you get from the most basic of hardware/software. An object lesson to us all.
