Description
A few weeks ago I bought a mandolin.. Always liked the sound of the mandolin..
It wasn't too difficult to learn the basic chords....
So, here's my first song with mandolins

Lyrics
See the stranger
He doesn't speak your tongue
Well he might be danger
He might do you wrong
You can only tell if your heart is straight
You can only tell when there's a stranger at your gate

You know you're a stanger too
In the eyes of the other
Yes we are strangers too
For our sisters and our brother
You can only tell if your heart is straight
You can only tell when there's a stranger at your gate

refr: If there's fear in your heart
Don't you let it tear you apart
This fear of the unknown
Be assured you're not alone
We're all in this together
And this little blue planet is our home

So when you meet a stranger
Open your heart and let him in
Don't see him as danger
See him as your nrxt of kin
You can only tell if your heart is straight
You can only tell when there's a stranger at your gate

Refr.

love that mandolin
and sounds so good with that ringing guitar. Groovy tune and your vocal harmony fits the mix well. Another nice one!

I always
wanted to play Mando but my fingers have always been too big and stumpy. Even a regular guitar is tough. Met a girl in college that could play Mando like nothing I've ever heard. She was good. It sounds great in this tune! Your tunes just sound great no matter what! Nicely done!

The mandolin really fills out the higher registers so nicely. Another exemplar KC tune. Great work. The harmonies sound just right and the sax sits wonderfully in the mix. A positive message, too. Thanks, Cees. Take care, Peter.

Ah, nothing like a new toy to get those creative ideas going. I've always loved the mandolin and it sounds great ... I know I've said this before but I like the way you compose your chorus's ... sax lab is a nice touch. Good message in the words. Well done!

Excellent song, the mandolin fits smoothly and perfectly into this groove. You are a quick study, would have never guessed you just picked it up. Love the sax, lyrics and vocals here. Excellent work, thanks for sharing with us.

Mando fun
I really enjoy a mandolin. I've been using my uke as one in recent recordings, but the real thing is best. I'm glad you're enjoying yours.

Hit the nail on the head with this one...
