  1. Beethoven Mandolin and Piano Sonata (Adagio Ma Non Troppo)

    I'm not the best piano player so this took me a hot minute to learn but I'm pretty happy with it. I love learning both sections... I feel like it gives me a better appreciation for the piece....
  2. Paganini Sonata Concertata Allegro Spiritoso

    This took me longer than Iíd like to admit to learn both parts lol. The mandolin part wasnít too bad but Iím not a great classical guitar player so that part took me a minute to learn.
