    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.
  2. Re: “Tuonne taakse metsämaan” (“To the woodland far away”)

    Very interesting - one pick plus one finger? As technique makes the instrument, this mandolin plays out of the box by far :cool:
  3. 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.

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

    Lovely tune and that hybrid picking style is so effective on those tunes, Toomas.
  8. Re: "Vals från Vargön" ("Walse from Vargön")

    Brilliant playing!
  9. 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.

    After not touching the mandolin for two years....I picked it up again at the beginning of this quarantine after breaking my ankle in two places (lots of sitting around)....had to sell my MT2V and was...
  11. 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?

    Very different and verrry nice. Fun stuff Toomas!:mandosmiley:
  13. Re: help not-quite-intermediate player put together a tune set

    Hi. There is absolutely no reason why a tune set should comprise any more than two tunes if you’re happy that two tunes “say” all you want to say.

    In fact, and this is merely a personal opinion,...

    Toomas, I knew that my transcriptions of the Oswald 12 had been downloaded many times years ago when I would check statistics on them. I haven't done that for several years now. I am glad they found...
