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

    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: Glorious fun

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

    I hope you're all well. Good luck in the new job! And I'll buy your latest album as soon as I log on...

    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: 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...

    Jill, Ye Vagabonds sound great! Those mandolins really sing. I'll check them out, thanks for the idea.

    Re: Video: The Princess

    Grey Owl is such a great tune! But all your videos are great. Everyone should have a family band like that (I can't convince my wife to play anything, and my son is too young).

    I second the...

    Re: Taran Springwell

    It's a great sound from the mandolin, absolutely. You're lucky to have each other - a great instrument for you, a great player for it!

    Re: Mandolin Sleigh Ride

    I have loathed this song for many years since working in a shop as a student Christmas job, where a tacky over-paced version of it was playing on loudspeakers several times every day. This was the...

    Re: Specific Pick Direction Question

    This is how I learnt it, too. If your piece is in 4/4 time and full of 16ths, the DUDU picking pattern is needed to play those. Notes of longer durations, consequently, turn into downstrokes as long...

    You're doing things there that I didn't even think possible. It's a beautiful tune and a perfect and impressive rendition.

    Re: Fingering Technique

    Wouldn't it depend on the melody? If a slide from one note to the next one up would sound good, that's the finger that will cover two notes. If there's a "breathing gap" between two notes, that's...

    The first couple of bars are similar to Alouette. I'm German, and the closest match to my mind hasn't been mentioned yet: This German children's song about a lanky boy and a plump girl picking fruit....

    I wouldn't say I've settled on the Hawk picks. They're one of my current favourites, along with many of the others in that video - Gravity, Blue Chip, Dunlop, and several varieties of each!
