    My mother died recently. Colin and I played this tune at her funeral. It's called Christina's Waltz, which I wrote over twenty years ago.

    A lovely tribute to your mother and a very fine tune, David. I can imagine the effect the tune would have on those attending the service.
    My thoughts to you and your family.

    I just had a great weekend teaching at Ullapool for Feis Rois.

    For the tutors concert I played a set with my old pal Andy Thorburn on piano. The guy is a genius. I really like the combination of mandolin and piano. Don't think we hear it enough actually.

    Here is a link to my Facebook page of me playing a Seagull S8 mandolin which I got a few weeks ago. Ideal for travelling with. Plenty volume and pretty good tone, especially for its size.

    Here's a tune I wrote quite recently, played during a break from the lambing.

    Dagger, my youngest dog sometimes has the same reaction. The older takes the opportunity to do what I like to call the happy dance.

    Great tune!

    This is a tune I really like playing on my 10 string mandolin - The Turn Of The Tide by the late Ian Hardie.

    A great tune, and fine playing, Dagger. Nice to see the excursions all over the fret board! That 10-string certainly has a big sound.

    I second the comment about the big sound! I was experimenting with drones just yesterday (John knows about this). You show how it's done properly. Great playing!

    This is a Bulgarian piece which I learned in Crete last year. I went for a week long seminar at Labyrinth Music Workshop in Houdetsi with a Spanish musician called Efren Lopez, of whom I am a very big fan. I was well out of my comfort zone, playing music from the Middle East and elsewhere, but that was what I wanted. This is a tune called Krivo Horo, and it's in quite a strange time signature if you're used to Scottish music. I love this kind of thing and was really grateful to Feis Rois for helping me go there.

    Certainly a big move outside the Scottish comfort zone, David. A bit like some of the material our new young bands are playing on the Scottish scene, I feel.

    Just me, my 10 string Sobell mandolin and my firebowl a little after 9.30 tonight. The tune is Mull Of The Mountains.
