    That's really lovely, Rob! Thank you for posting. What app did you use to record? Just the built-in mic or did you use an external mic? Right at the end, I thought it could have segued into Stairway to Heaven, but that might not have maintained the holiday vibe...

    Thank you very much lukmanohnz! I actually used GarageBand and recorded using the built in mic.

    Quite nice!

    One of my favorite versions of that tune . . .

    Note to self for the future: When travelling to see the in-laws for Christmas, always bring a mandolin. Always.
