    It's a pleasant music morning on the Cafe for me. Thanks.

    I love that song. Well done.

    I used to play this pretty often at my Italian restaurant gig. Solo mandolin, all instrumental, mostly Italian tunes ... but this was the bartender's favorite song, so I worked it up for her. Lots of tremolo, so it even sounded Italian, if you didn't recognize the song. I'd do it through in a low register, then up an octave the second time through. Pretty sweet. It's a good idea to keep the bartender happy.

    Thank you all, very much!

    And yes, that's my wife singing and flat picking guitar. I've loved her voice and guitar playing, among other things, since 1973.
