    Here's "Seneca Square Dance". I actually live only a few miles from Seneca, SC, which is in Oconee County. I don't know if the tune is the same Seneca or not....

    From last Saturday's benefit fundraiser, Hands Across The Gulf: Jeordie Schekeryk, (Melanie's daughter), with me providing backup. Not the greatest video/audio quality. No idea why the start was cut off. This was the first song of the set, and unrehearsed, so small wonder it's not too cohesive. But hey - for once the mandolin gets all the lead work, so be happy for that!

    Great job JB! Very nice lead work on a really enjoyable version of the tune. Also, I found it really noticeable how well the mandolin and tambourine sound together...A clear example of 'Gypsy wisdom', I guess...Outstanding stuff!

    Thanks, Ed. You are too kind. I was trying my level best to do my level best, making the best out of a bad situation - well, less-than-perfect anyway. I'm just glad the mix was pretty good in the house, because I couldn't tell on stage. Any success was accidental. This was a very low-rent situation, as should be obvious, but every time I play I try to make it worthwhile. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    Patrick,

    Sorry to be late to the party with my commentary, but I'd pay good money to hear more of what you and Matt are playing. Anything recorded for offer?

    here is a clip of me playing with my band, The Cowtown String Band. The song was written by our guitarist/lead vocalist Matthew Williams and was previously recorded on Blueground Undergrass' last record "Faces". Any who, here it is

    Last weekend I got my F5 out for the first time in a while, so I thought I'd make a recording of it. This is a simple slow waltz written by Bernardo De Pace with some nice double stops -- miles away from his Vaudeville repertoire as seen in this famous 1920s film.

    The tune is called "Garden of Roses". I've previously recorded it on an old Vinaccia bowlback, but transferring it to an F5 changes the character completely -- now it reminds me more of Westphalia Waltz as played on the Bluegrass Mandolin Extravaganza album.



    For something more classical, I've found that Mendelssohn's Spring Song is good fun to play on mandolin:

    This is awesome. A lot of it reminds me of some of the stuff I've seen of Mike Compton, but then it has a very european feel as well.

    I've got one! My first youtube video. Not playing mandolin on it though, although I will in the future. Guitar - Gillian Welch's Wayside (Back In Time):

    edit: hmm, doesn't seem to be embedding. Here's the link:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZwNkcJs84o

    I mess up the lyrics at the beginning.

    Thanx fwoompf. It's plain doublestops applied to ITM. And it is possible without wearing overalls!

    Good singing there!

    Great stuff. Good job. If you hadn't said unrehearsed I would not have thought it.

    I find playing in a line like that very uncomfortable. Just me personally. Have to turn your head from the audience to get eye contact from others in the band. Feel like a police line-up. Perhaps the secret is to have it down so well that no eye contact is needed till the bow. I know almost all bands do a it these days, its pretty standard.

    I posted my first youtube video the other day, and on the strength of a few postive emails, I'll post it here.

    It's a song I began on my 27th birthday with the first verse and melody. The others were added on my 54th birthday, 27 years later. Skill level hasn't changed much (as evidenced my the flubbed last bit). I don't know how to embed, so here's the link.

    It's really pretty easy to embed videos. From the youtube url copy just the string of characters right after v= then at the Go Advanced window click on the red Tube icon and paste that string into the popup.

    Thank you, journeybear. Though with all those instructions... Sounds harder than the tecnique for making the switch between a full G - to D chop. I'll have to work on that too. But thanks!
