    Re: technique

    Canít really separate technique from other aspects of playing, can you? Expressiveness would rely in part on technique, and can even be said to be a technique in and of itself.

    Somebody recently posted a video of Sierra Hull demonstrating how to achieve good “tone”. Interestingly, everything she discusses in that video is about technique.

    Re: Solo Recordings - 1 Mandolin

    Too bad you don’t care for vocals, Brian Oberlin’s stuff is awesome, solo mandolin but some songs with vocals along with the instrumentals.

    Also, check out Mandalone by Tim O’Connell

    Re: ďItís Now or NeverĒ Saturday Jam

    Great job, I love mandolin accompaniment to vocals. Hard for me to make it work on a lot of songs, but some like this one are great for it. I like doing Don't Be Cruel on the mandolin as well.
