    Nice picking!
    Mandolin: Kentucky KM150

    Thanks, Steve. That sounds like a close relative of the Scottish (and Canadian) standard "The Flowers of Edinburgh":
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
