    You’re welcome, of course. Be sure to listen to the Montana Mandolin Society do their take on it.

    That's it! I got it originally when they first came out. At that time I was building a duet repertoire with a guitar player and I was focused on my mandolin. Now with COVID, not doing that! So, I tuned it up and walk about the yard playing my tunes. I'm having a few struggles and a few successes. Just challenging my brain and my fingers!

    Really enjoying the sound; however. And, it's good for technique to wrangle such a beast!

    Spending time learning and relearning a few rags. Once you learn one, it gets easier to learn many others.

    Been wanting to record this for quite some time, so it’s just been my latest fiddle tune.

    Here’s the TAB, hope I got it about right.
    Enjoy, and Happy Christmas!

    This is a new old time tune, John Grimm's Butterfly Waltz. It's on his new album.

    Working on Devaney's Goat. Dave Surette uses some triplets in unexpected places which at 180 bpm is a challenge for me. So the last week has devolved to triplet practice, which I need.

    Reel de Montreal from Randy Miller's New England Fiddler Repertoire book. A great resource.

    Sometimes I see a title and it piques my interest. So in the New England / Quebec repertoire I have been learning Snoring Mrs. Gobiel, Little Burnt Potato, Reel de Montreal, and Big John McNeil among others. Gotta wonder who and where they came up with those titles but they are wonderful tunes.
