    This is a dance tune (a schottische) written by John Hart from Denmark. This arrangement has a treble harmony by "Astrid" (I don't know the surname) and a baritone harmony by Michel Van Der Meiren. Available from:

    I've adapted the arrangement for mandolin quartet (2 mandolin, octave mandolin, tenor guitar).

    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin
    Mid-Missouri M-111 octave mandolin
    Ozark tenor guitar

    As part of my lockdown video series, I've been revisiting some old tunes. My earlier recordings of these were trial runs for the arrangements, before introducing them to our weekly group practices/jams. We've been playing them for a few years now fairly regularly,and I think the new recordings are much improved in terms of fluency and musicality.

    So, here is my new recording of "40 somre", one of my favourite tunes!

    Nice performance, Martin.
    Tanks for PDF. The piece is fun to play.

    BTW below the sheet music it says: Astrid Pørtner Nielsen har lavet 2. stemmen

    Thanks, Dennis and Frithjof. Yes, I noticed the surname -- when I originally posted the tune in 2014, the PDF just said "Astrid", but according to the revision history it was updated in 2016.
