Mandolin on a Summer Night



Liner Notes: 

We had a busy day yesterday, and when I took the dog for her evening walk I was pretty tired. But the evening breeze energized me, so I decided to take my mandolin outside and make up something.
This demo is two takes of the same short lullaby.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

That's a sweet melody indeed. And great accompaniment from my namesakes, the crickets.

Gotta love a waltz! This is very pretty. Night insects really add something to a mandolin waltz I think. I like the contrast of the B section.

Love the feel of sitting on the front porch on a summer night playing your instrument. Makes me excited, too, for when I finally get my mandolin back. It's getting fixed! Something I didn't think was going to happen for a long, long time.

I love the low-key, front porch feel of your tunes.
Nice little melody.
And of course played on the mandolin, one of my favourite instruments!

Lovely melody you made here. Great sound and who can resist a mandolin

A great way to end a busy day. Thank you for sharing your peace and feeling of contentment through your music. I like how you said 'alright' at the very end too - you sound so laid back and in tune (pun intended I guess lol) with the world around you. Well, good night to you! Smile

Delicately entrancing, like someone somehow put a mandolin in a magical little music box. Sweetly cheerful, like the sunset closing a satisfying day.
