    Very nice, Dave! Pat Galvin's is difficult to play, but you did a great job.

    Re: Middle of the night practice?

    I'm too worried about waking the family or neighbours to play late at night. I push it to just after 11 pm sometimes and haven't had any complaints yet. But I don't think later evening or early...

    Re: Mandolin Orange is now Watchhouse

    The official explanation, posted here, suggests this. But I don't get it. In what way does "Mandolin Orange" suggest a particular style of music, except one with mandolin in it? Am I missing a...

    Re: Best budget mandolin UK

    The chances of cutting through that session of instruments are slim with any brand or make of mandolin. You need to be realistic about that. But playing along is still fun, and remember that you will...

    Re: Glorious fun

    I'm pleased you enjoyed that! It's always nice to get back to music after an enforced absence.

    Re: A wee tune on the Sobell

    Thank you for sharing the story of that track, which is so interesting. Credit to Alec, for sure, but don't downplay your own excellent picking on that classic track.

    And that's a real keeper of...

    Re: A wee tune on the Sobell

    I loved the first track on your "Springwell" album because the notes sounded like a fountain of the clearest water - if that isn't getting too poetic. Was that the same mandolin? Your playing here...

    Re: New Andrew Marlin Album

    Both of the new albums are astoundingly good. "Buried in a Cape" was a great recording already, but these two move me even more deeply. That 10-minute opener on "Fable & Fire" is absolutely epic in...

    Re: CD La Mando is out now

    I bought the digital album when it came out, and I'm enjoying it very much! The mandola playing and arrangements are really good.

    Perinmama remains my favourite among your albums, though. It has...

    Re: Looking for instruction

    Sorry, I didn't see this when you first posted it. The combination of songwriting, rhythm, music theory, mandolin and Irish music in a teacher is probably not very common. You may have to separate...

    Re: Ever just love the sound of your mandolin?

    Yes, but the opposite is more common. I know my mandolin can sound great, and usually I feel that I'm not doing it justice!
