    Re: 40 Somre (Danish folk)

    I totally agree with your comment that we play a tune in a particular way so often that it becomes our recognised way of playing it. The recent posting of Over the Waterfall on the SAW group is a...

    Re: Microphone for recording at home?

    I generally record to my laptop via REAPER software and use a Rode NT1A most of the time, but recently, thanks to recommendation from another poster over on the Song-A-Week Social Group I have...

    Re: Vals från Vargön, jazz version

    Interesting improvisation phrases here, Toomas. I enjoyed your scale runs mixed with the chordal phrasing. Quite different from your non-jazz version.
  4. Re: “Tuonne taakse metsämaan” (“To the woodland far away”)

    Another of your very fine and distinctive offerings, Toomas. The two voices technique works so well on those tunes you post.

    Re: Dagger Gordon video

    A great tune, and fine playing, Dagger. Nice to see the excursions all over the fret board! That 10-string certainly has a big sound.

    Re: Irish Metronome

    Simon, the advice given here by Polecat is really valuable. Metronomes are for teaching strict tempo playing. Ehat you are looking for is the ability to vary the tempo of a tune as a way of adding...

    Re: The Blue Bells of Scotland

    Fine arrangement and playing, Toomas, and thanks for posting the pdf as well.
  8. Re: Kudos to our administrators and moderators

    You are absolutely correct, Belbein. This is probably one of the very best sites for positivity and general lack of the nasty trolling and unpleasant posting on so many other sites, and I would say...

    Re: Flat top Arch back mandolin

    Great video, great playing by Robin and superb building by yourself, Gary. You must be so delighted with the sound this instrument is creating.

  10. Re: “Mamma har sagt till mig” (“Mom has told me”)

    Lovely tune and that hybrid picking style is so effective on those tunes, Toomas.

    Kevin, someone must have changed the permissions on this video - it is coming up as unavailable and private!

    Re: Celtic lockdown!

    Thanks for link, Bren. As a retired teacher of English in Dunoon Grammar School (retired in 2003 after 35 years at the chalkface) I really did my best to sort out past tenses from past particples,...

    Re: Dekavalas 4 course Greek bouzouki

    What a great set of videos, Kevin. You are using the lockdown very sensibly!
    Great sound from that bouzouki and it really is a grand instrument for the pipe marches.
    Your Taran mando is sounding...
  14. Re: "Vals från Vargön" ("Walse from Vargön")

    I like your hybrid picking style on this tune, Toomas. Very unusual on a mandolin in my part of the world, but so effective on the harmonies you play here.

    Re: How Do I Start and Run A Session?

    I would agree with Foldedpath's caveats, Phillipe. There are teaching groups, for which you have a good model there, and live sessions, and the two are very different.

    Here in Scotland I have...
  16. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    You are right, Aidan. The contact with fellow players is so very positive and such a big boost in this time of seclusion. I am regularly swapping material with some of the folk I generally play...
  17. Re: help not-quite-intermediate player put together a tune set

    I would agree with all Aidan says here, Heady. Also, are you playing for an audience, for dancing ,or for yourself (and maybe a few fellow-players) for your own enjoyment?
    For dancing, and I am...
  18. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    A lovely composition and great sound from the octave, Aidan. If you step away from the Irish tradition for a moment it might be classed as a 4/4 march, perhaps. Or even better, just categorise it...

    Since they are the 4 keys that are most regularly met (if we are playing traditional music) then proficiency in all four would be a very useful skill, Sherry. Why do you feel the need for 3-finger...

    Re: 10 Questions for Dagger Gordon

    So, time for a well-earned break, Dagger, and in the sunshine too. Looks cold as well as sunny, but hey, it's Invergordon in early Spring.
    Thanks for posting this joyful wee number.
