    Default An original tune on a Sobell mandola



    This is a tune I wrote earlier this year, played on a Sobell mandola (not mine)


    P.S.
    Please ignore the capo, it's a long story

    Gunnar, it's a good tune - I really enjoyed it!
    I've also checked out some of your multi-instrumental offerings on your YouTube channel; I'm quite impressed with your abilities as a well-rounded musician.

    Looks pretty big for a Dola? More Mando-Cello type isn't it? Pretty sweet regardless.

    Nice. Like the exotic intervals. That's a good sounding Sobell mandola.

    A three-fer. Nice sound, nice playing and nice composition. Good job.

    Nope, it's just a dola. Maybe a biggish one, but def a dola. I also play a zouk in the same place, and it was way bigger.

    Thanks y'all!
