    Very nicely done! Thank you for the tab as well. I’m at the beach this week with only a uke and a tele given the heat/humidity/travel, but am looking forward to having a go at it when I get home this weekend!

    Wow that sounded great! An interesting case for the capoed OM—unique timbre zone, resonant but light.

    Sounds great! Going to give this a shot capoed on my tenor guitar. Won't have quite the same ring, but I think it'll work.

    Great, driving jig you have written, and you play it really well. Your octave sounds great too.

    It almost sounds more like a slide than a jig—more in 12/8 than 6/8—but, nevertheless, a lovely tune and well-played.

    Great artistry and composition Mandolin Wild! Very enjoyable. I think Octave Mandolins are suited perfectly for Irish music! Awesome! Is that a Pono short scale OM?

    You're doing things there that I didn't even think possible. It's a beautiful tune and a perfect and impressive rendition.
