    OK, that mandolin had a great voice brand new, but to my ear, it's developed a whole lot by this tune. It sounds incredible. And your playing does too. Please keep this going--best thead on the cafe.

    Here's a Paddy O'Brien's Hornpipe for my week 7 tune of the Tune-A-Week project, only played it once through because not much memory left on the camera:

    What a great project to undertake, Jill. I am sure you will see it through, much to the delight of all of us who listen to you regularly.

    Jill, How do you learn all these songs so quick ??? It takes me a LONG time to learn one new song ! Let's see, there is something called talent and youth ! I lack both !

    They sound great Jill. I am amazed at how fluid your playing is, and that you can post a tune every week.

    Cheers Brian - it's the folks who do Tune-A-Day projects like Fergal Scahill that I'm in awe of! Way too daunting for me to even think about that!

    Hi Jill, I really like that rendition of Peter Byrnes Fancy! Would you have tab you could share? I found a couple versions online but they are really sparse.

    Hi Mark,
    Here's a tabbed version that a guy I know from a Facebook tenor banjo group did from my recording of the tune:

    Nice playing, Jill. Your right hand triplets seem so smooth and effortless...I struggle with those. Need more practice I guess. Thanks for posting; this is a good thread to follow!

    Thanks Jill! That was really helpful. I am skipping most of the two note chords and that’s helping it flow, at least for now (in case anyone else attempts this). Really amazing how fluid your playing is, harder than it initially appeared- thanks so much for posting these and challenging us folks!
