    Yes, Jim... you have excellent taste.

    I have been slaving over Oklahoma Redbird in Bb recently. Exceptionally fun on fiddle as well as mandolin.

    Jimmy Shanks, a nice, easy tune. On the new Pomeroy.

    My wife and I specialize in old fiddle tunes with her on fiddle and me on guitar/mandolin/clawhammer banjo. I read music and mine the Portland books for all they're worth. I found some interesting tune books at the Celtic Interpretive Centre in Judique, Cape Breton Island, NS. An interesting tune we learned was Ways of the World. A favorite new OT tune was Elzics Farewell.

    I'm focused on Lindsey Road (Harvey Reid). I've played this in a duet for several years using my mandolin. Now, it's coming out of my octave mandolin. (Actually, I'm having fun re-tooling music on my OM! Fingering's not quite the same!

    All fun though!

    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !
