Description
Wanted to buy a mandolin for a decade or so, finally got it this past weekend. Wanted to archive my first mandolin efforts and it reminded me of my macjams days so here goes!

Playing
Thanks Warren. It's a load of fun to play. I got it mainly to have an instrument I could play lead on during acoustic situations. This'll be good camp fire fun!

folky funk
Even though it's a mandolin, you still manage to play it like a funk monster! Very nice, I enjoyed it.

I wonder what that thing would sound like with a wah pedal? :-)

First week of playing the mandolin? You are a quick learner, thats for sure. It sounds like you have some fun times ahead. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

Fun Times Ahead
Hi Dean, while it is true that I am new to the mandolin, I have been playing guitar for a good chunk of my life. Those skills are pretty easily transferable to the mandolin.

Now if I were to pick up the saxophone the learning curve would be considerably more!

Me too
always wanted a decent mando. My one has a big screw holding it together and won't stay in tune. Mind you even if I could get it in tune I'm not sure I could do as good as this.

Cheers

Mando Quality
Hi Dick, thanks for stopping in. I have a Denver mandolin, brand new it only cost $130 (Canadian). That's less than $100 USD! I think it sounds pretty good, and it stays in tune nicely.

I might upgrade in the near future as I think this thing has staying power and I would need something that plugs in to incorporate it into my live act, but for now, this is the best $130 I might have ever spent!

I added a mando to the herd last year. Told the wife, it was a guitar that was stunted shortly after birth... and needed lots of kindness...

Takes me back
To so many bands that captured this kind of sound. You nailed it and I can hear you're having fun. Even though it's a new instrument you're clearly pretty familiar with how to play it and also how to get that just right sound. Nice track, and thanks for the download.

They are very distinctive. I'm not a great fan of them as a solo instrument, but in a group they are magical. Keep up the good work!

Nice audition of the new instrument, Pete. I want one, too. And a dobro. And a uke. And a banjo... :-) Have fun. Thanks.
