    Default Austin Clark Octave Mandolin



    Any fingerstyle fans out there? Austin’s OM is a treat to play!

    Here’s the link if it doesn’t play: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TLv-jflB3bI

    Nice playing, Peter. I fixed the link so it will play in the post.

    I gotta say, if I wanted to play finger style I'd grab a guitar... but this video may just make me change my mind

    That was so cool!

    That was awesome and should have been a Mandolin Mondays clip!
    Play that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    Wonderful playing and tone from a stunning Octave!

    That's some deft left foot work there as well!
