    Default "Vals från Vargön" ("Walse from Vargön")

    This Swedish walse from West Gothland was published in two books: one voice in one book and one in another, both for violin. I put them together, made some changes in the low voice and here it is:

    I like your hybrid picking style on this tune, Toomas. Very unusual on a mandolin in my part of the world, but so effective on the harmonies you play here.

    Thank you, John! I like your term “hybrid picking”. This style comes somehow from my background as a guitar player. Years of violin lessons in childhood, metal-band in eighties, jazz’n’swing bands and duos in nineties, mandolin from seventies to nowadays. Lots of different techniques: finger-picking, chord and octave soloing, two-hand tapping, acoustic and electric guitars and so on. In search of sound I’m a somewhat hybrid for myself. And still “got a long way to go and short time to get there”.
