    Re: Faraway Grandchild

    I wrote the tune for my wife's parents shortly after the birth of our oldest child Colin, who is now 32.

    My wife is American, and her family are based in Connecticut.

    Re: Andrew York. Home.

    Here is Andrew's video. I did have a quick go at this piece this morning. I think it will work quite well on my 10 string mandolin

  10. Kaki King playing Veillette Gryphon high-strung 12 string guitar

    Not a mandolin, but there are obvious similarities with the double strings and high sound.
