    Hi,

    Must admit heresy and say that I usually don’t like Chris Thile much, but thought that this was nicely understated and enjoyable.

    Dagger,

    Thanks for posting the video. Much appreciate it. I presume the rest of the household were up too as that octave’s thunderous tone would wake up most folks.

    Re: Leaving Stoer by Ivan Drever

    Hi,

    Thanks Dagger. I was just surprised there were no mandolin versions on I Tunes or You Tube. Would welcome one of the experts like you posting a video if it’s a tune you play.

    Cheers,
