  6. Re: Octave in tune but lower frets are not?

    Audio on Sessions.org!

    Sessions.Org is a great site for every variation of just about any Celtic, or related tune. I visit there often. You can get standard notation or abc. format. BUT, I just discovered that they have...

    It was a modification. I never meant to suggest anything else. But, I think this modification—including the several modifications Bruce made to my mandolin—all come under the heading of a setup....

    I second that recommendation! Brilliant, funny, charming series. I own the DVD set! I think we’ve watched it four times. McKenzie Crook is a genius.

    Simon, I just listened to your version of LITD on YT. (That is you, right?) Great swinging rhythm right there, if you ask me! Enough to make me want to learn that tune!
