    Working on O’Leary’s Motorcycle at the moment. https://thesession.org/tunes/4603 thanks Gortnamona for this one.
    Wonderfully rhythmic, rolling, clattering tune with some great parts where you can throw in hesitant triplets and discordant double stops.

    ^^^ Have not attempted to play it yet, but I’ve been enamored of late by this waltz: The Georgiana Starlington Waltz by Tom Morley. One of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve heard in a long time.

    Ones that come to mind immediately: Coleman’s March, Ashokan Farewell—actually a bunch of waltzes, Tombigbee is one. I’ll think some more.

    Of course, it all depends on how you play them, but a couple that come to mind: Farewell Trion, Elk River Blues, Neil Gao's Lament, and Coal Harbor Bend. Maybe some of the Bill Monroe Waltzes, like Lonesome Moonlight Waltz. His Mississippi Waltz might be more bluesy than you are looking for.

    Some people play these tunes fast, but they are great nice and slow, too.

    Maple Leaf Jig. Learning on the fiddle and mandolin. Tricky timing with the bow / pick. In 6/8 time (jig) but you've got to pay close attention to the note values. Fun tune to play though!

    Dry and Dusty.

    When I need mandospiration, I sometimes look up this youngster, Matt Witler. He plays demos for Music Emporium and is always so...musical. He reminds me of why I try to play the thing. This is a slower tempo than I've usually heard the tune, but it really sounds...musical.

    Sometimes slowing down a tune wrings out the flavors and emotions expressed in playing. I will also say that his excellent playing is perfect demo for that mandolin. Even in an OK set of earphones I get the sense of the depth of tones capable of that Ellis.

    In the process of hand-writing out the tab and learning 'Woodland Star' off Andrew Marlin's latest album.

    It's been a great exercise in patience, and thank gawd for the Amazing Slow Downer. Hearing it played at half speed gives me even more appreciation for the subtlety of Andrew's playing.

    My new fiddle tune is Ebenezer. I learned it from this YouTube fiddle version. The name of the player is not shown, but it's very clean and easy to hear. I put it into Loop mode, and slowed it down to .5 and listened to it a lot, and played along with it. I finally have the tune down now. It's pretty tricky to hear, but is not technically difficult. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6e0...%99sHoleFiddle
