    Default “Tuonne taakse metsämaan” (“To the woodland far away”)

    This lovely Finnish folksong was arranged for two voices and was published in “Lemmiklaulik VII (Riho Päts) (K.-Ü. "Kooli-Kooperatiivi kirjastus, Tallinn, 1938)”. Here it is played on one mandolin:

    Another of your very fine and distinctive offerings, Toomas. The two voices technique works so well on those tunes you post.

    Very interesting - one pick plus one finger? As technique makes the instrument, this mandolin plays out of the box by far

    Thank you! The process of developing this technique is still running. In search of new sound and wanting to get closer to music I’m interested, I started with it in September 2019. I use pick and 1-2, sometimes 3 fingers. In this process of testing this technique on different types of music, (different speed, key, time sign. and so on), finding out what suits better in different occasions, It’s very refreshing to hear someones opinion from aside. It’s not only like having some pairs of extra ears but also ears having different background and from different angle of view, if we can say so. As answers come out of questions, new ideas very often come out of dialogue, so I thank all of you for writing down some words. I really appreciate that.
