    I admire Mike’s version above and did my best to follow him on my Eastman 815v but without any accompaniment.

    Sounds fine Fritjoff!

    That sounds really nice on your F5, Frithjof.

    Thanks for the feedback Matt, John and Don.

    Very good tone from those mandolins! It looks like a tricky tune.

    Great, rocking tune Mike. Had to put it on my list.

    Hello Dennis.
  9. Gelsenbury
    Hi Simon! It's on my list now, too. Mainly because I like the title!

    Me too, reminds me of a story my grandma told where she was washing in the old sink in their kitchen thinking of the fact that potatoes, onions and a tiny bit of butter for dinner was going to be a bit depressing and an eel appeared in the sink. Got her sister to fry up the poor unfortunate beastie. Grandad very happy!

    Nice job, Frithjof. This is a rollicking little tune. This group turns up some real gems I'd otherwise never have played. Life is good!
  12. Frithjof
    Thanks a lot, Mike.
    This group is a musical treasury! And the best thing is that we are allowed (and some time forced) to take the gem out of it, play with them and polish them up (if we can ).

    I just started experimenting with Logic Pro and made this thing, which hopefully isn't a complete abomination: https://soundcloud.com/phb256/eels-in-the-sink I really had to stretch my finger to play some of this on the mandocello.

    Deep sound on a steady pace, phb. I guess my fingers would hurt like hell after playing that on a mandocello.
