    Default Finnish mandolin players playing Chris Thile's music, Bach etc.

    Hello!

    Here's a clip from a recent mandolin gig I did with my friend here in Finland. We are both aspiring mandolin players and would love to hear what you think about our playing. We play all kinds of styles ranging from Chris Thile stuff to Bach and Nordic folk music. Any comments are appreciated!

    Very nice playing indeed, Risto. I don't think you are aspiring players. I think you are excellent players.

    Very nice playing indeed Risto, and good choice of instruments and tunes for duets. I'd be a patronize that bar to see you perform.

    OK, so now I aspire to be an aspiring mandolin player (if that's what an aspiring mandolin player sounds like).

    Great playing!
