    Since there's violins, a ruan and a bandurria above, hopefully this is OK despite the lack of mandos (feel free to delete if not).

    Here's me playing a 4 course medieval lute I built. The song I'm playing here is 'Douce Dame Jolie' by Guillame de Machaut.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G37GopFyPG0

    Here's me playing a Kwitra (north African relative of the oud) I built. I'm improvising around the theme of 'Üsküdara', a traditional Turkish song.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBmAQBhj0Jk

    And here's me playing a Panduri (Traditional Georgian instrument) I built. This is just an improvisation I made up on the spot.

    I can't seem to get the videos to embed with the 'youtube' tag, so I've had to use links.

    Here is the first video embedded, Jo. I went to the Advanced option, then click on the YouTube icon and paste in your url BUT delete everything to the left of and including the "=" sign. So in your case you include only the G37GopFyPG0 part.

    I played it on my Martin 000-28, though I wrote it on my Collings MT. This is a rough cut of my song, "Vader Tavern." This is a true story. (Note: my Parkinson's Plus Syndrome has affected my expression and movements, so please bear with me

    Two Old Gibson A Mandolins passed down through my wife's family. These are the mandolins that got me started on mandolin in 1982. Then I didn't touch it again until 2013.

    No, I really can't hear you. But I'm sure you played very well.

    My favourite version of that song is at https://youtu.be/Hur5IHifG64

    I know the thread title is "Post a video of YOURSELF", and I'm not in the video (wish I could play like that). But it just fits so well with the topic and the season.

    Wrote this song on a Gibson J45, but when I received the mando for some reason, I felt like playing it...

    My attempt at playing a traditional Armenian song in 7/8 called 'Sevani Tsgnorsner' (Fishermen of Lake Sevan). Still needs more practice but getting there!

    Not only do you build great instruments, Jo, but you then play the music that goes with them! 7/8 sounds like a beast to handle; I got lost just trying to count along with your playing!

    That's a 4-string domra, tuned the same as a mandolin (the 3 string version is tuned in fourths).

    Thanks Jo, that’s such a great tune, and I like the authentic feel you give to it.
    Well done.

    Just an idea, but you could post yours to Song A Week under the song title and some of us 7/8 time beginners might be tempted to write out the TAB and post our various colourful versions -metronome prerequisite for this one!
    Here’s George Mgrdichian playing another version (and it appears from his site that he likes bellydancers, but that’s another debate, ha, ha).
    An inspiring version that I think is easier to decipher using YouTube slow down -it’s worth it even just to learn rhythm on the first or the last couple of measures. His slides and ornaments on the oud are really something...
    And thanks again, Jo.
    (This isn’t a video of me -I wish!)

    Thanks for your kind words! That's a great idea if you think there'd be sufficient interest in this tune for people?

    I’ve been doing 12 Days of Christmas Tunes, on 12 different instruments. MAS? Nah, I’ve only got 5 mandolin-family instruments out of those. Here’s “Sleigh Ride” on a borrowed e-mando. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!!

    ...and a late night improv. If you can call it that. Well, it was night time, I suppose, so at least the first part is accurate
