    Fantastic. I feel like I could spend a lifetime getting that “slidey stuff” down. ��

    Loved those videos. If you have ever been to a Mike Compton camp there is sure to be a session on getting that "fiddle sound" out of the mandolin. He has gone farther then almost anyone else on that I think?

    Mike, Good work. You may want to pay more attention to the relative volume of your voice and your mandolin.
