    I did because of this video! I may post video later. My recommendation is to utilize the YouTube half-speed feature

    Nice playing but I am not sure what you mean by "picking double-strings on mandolin." Don't those of us who play standard 8 strings always pick double strings? Or are you talking about double-stops, meaning picking chords/four strings?

    The half-speed feature on that video, at least on my computer, sounds like gargling. I try to capture the video (if possible) then run it thru Amazing Slowdowner to a mortal-like speed. Less distortion, tho the youtube method might work OK.

    Leviathan Hornpipe. There is a version on p222 of Ryan's. A grand, simple tune in G that plays well on the mandolin.

    There is a fiddle version on youtube.

    I'm going to try to put it into a medley with a tune in D with the same name, but a different tune, played on pipes on the youtube.
