    This is me >> protectionist) playing the tune Rights of Man. Key of G on the mandolin. I botched it just a bit at the end, but it's 99% OK. Hope you like it.

    Here's a little historical background on the tune. It is a baroque tune from the time of William III & Mary II, in England (1689 AD). At the dual coronation of the English King and Queen, the English parliament drew up the Declaration of the Rights of Man (the English Bill of Rights), and the forerunner of our US Constitution. It's generally considered an Irish tune, but is really English in origin, probably composed by an Irish mandolinist or fiddler, whose name will never be known, but (just like classical music), the tune lives on, with those of us who love it, and play it, and respect its massive historical significance.

    I love mandolin music, especially the old stuff. Anyone who wants to play me another tune is fine by me. Pogo

    The video is copy/pasted from another of my threads (about academy awards)

    Funny that you didn't notice I added an entire extra (3rd) part, which is similar to the second part, but an octave lower. You notice ?

    I intend to post many more - not just the MANDolin, but the VIolin too, as well as the guitar (acoustic and electric)

    Yeah I did notice, just didn't mention it.

    When I was playing I liked to run Gounoud's Funeral March of a Marionette to stretch the left hand beyond the first position -- sounds pretty good on the instrument ...

    Nothing against any of the music you post, but I'd appreciate if you would not post too much video in this thread. I'm trying to keep it as primarily one of MY music, without that getting lost in a mileu of other stuff. Other posters can do the same in threads of theirs too, in fact I'd like to see more of these type of threads, from other posters, without the musical identities getting lost in the shuffle.

    No, just having a thread for my music. Anyone else can do the same (and should), as I said. :biggrin:

    I think it's a nice idea.
