Hi there, here are the latest articles published at theMandolinTuner in case you missed them.

The first article is a video of a great mandolin quartet from Israel, named Dolce Mandolin Quartet. They play a brilliant arrangement of Summertime from G. Gershwin and their performance is excellent!

The second article is a video of a great Greek mandolin orchestra named ATTIKA. This orchestra has a big history and in this video from 2001 they play La Paloma with a great relaxed rhythm. A joy to view and listen.

The third article is a song I really like, Wicked Game by Chris Isaak. If you have a falsetto voice like he has, you can try to sing it as I included lyrics, chords and an embedded video to play along. (You do not need a falsetto voice though, I am just joking...)

Cheers, thanks again, and I'll see you on the inside!
