    Wow! One of my favorite tunes. Thanks for sharing.

    That was fun, Steve.
    It's funny how funky the mandolin can be. I play some New Orleans funk: Cissy Strut (The Meters) and Get Out of My Life Woman (Allen Toussaint).
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    Wow. Excellent playing, Steve. Just made my Saturday a little better (and funky).
    I can only play half as much as I want, because I only play half as much as I would like.

    Bit late to this train, but this is incredible, inspiring, and utterly funky. I'd love to see more mandolinists branching out in genre.

    Seriously cool. Outrageously good! Very glad this thread got "woken up", because I hadn't seen it before.
