    Sometimes slowing down a tune wrings out the flavors and emotions expressed in playing. I will also say that his excellent playing is perfect demo for that mandolin. Even in an OK set of earphones I get the sense of the depth of tones capable of that Ellis.

    In the process of hand-writing out the tab and learning 'Woodland Star' off Andrew Marlin's latest album.

    It's been a great exercise in patience, and thank gawd for the Amazing Slow Downer. Hearing it played at half speed gives me even more appreciation for the subtlety of Andrew's playing.

    My new fiddle tune is Ebenezer. I learned it from this YouTube fiddle version. The name of the player is not shown, but it's very clean and easy to hear. I put it into Loop mode, and slowed it down to .5 and listened to it a lot, and played along with it. I finally have the tune down now. It's pretty tricky to hear, but is not technically difficult. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6e0...%99sHoleFiddle

    Here's two from Cole's 1001 and fiddle tunes: "San Souci Hornpipe" and "The Czar of Russia's Favorite Hornpipe" played here on a 1920 Gibson F4 and and 1925 Gibson H1 Mandola. James Bryan Recorded "the Czar of Russia's Hornpipe" on his "Look Out Blues" rounder album, seems he and Norman Blake referenced Cole's quite a bit. I have neve heard San Souci performed other than by myself, but I do think those two old time boxes sound pretty good together!

    Great stuff, tmsweeney! I have spent hours with Cole's seeking interesting tunes. Those two are great. I love your arrangement with the mandola. Has a nice baroque feel to it.

    I will have to dig in and take a look at ones I have found. I was interested in flat keys and unusual rhythms like clogs and strathspeys. I will get back to you. BTW we are only a few hours apart geographically. I wonder if we have ever met. Maybe find a place midway with our Coles/Ryans books.

    Pretty funny that I have had the link covered Coles since new but like flipping thru. I couldn’t find my copy so I bought the Melbay edition new and then found my Coles. Oh well

    Jim its possible we've crossed paths, though I don't get down to Westchester much these days ( hardly leave the house to be honest), but if you want to pick a tune out of Coles or two for a medley I'd be happy to work up a dola part and perhaps we can find somewhere that works to try it live.

    I am on a quest for a vintage Gibson cello so I can perform a vintage trio, the K4 in the classified was a little more than I wanted to spend, but oh what a beauty!

    My new fiddle tune is an accordion tune by Ian McPhail.
    Grace Renwick Polka
    Three parts , all in flat keys.
    Bb, Eb and F
    A good pinky workout and fun to play too.
    Or it will be when I can get it to flow.
    Many accordion versions online but haven't heard any other instruments playing it.
