Rory MacLeod - a Scottish jig

Postby John Kelly » Tue Feb 21, 2012 2:10 pm

I recorded this jig, by PM Donald MacLeod, on octave mandolin and tenor guitar, mainly because I liked the tune a lot but also to demonstrate the different sound got from the octave and the tenor (from 1:15 onwards). Both instruments are my own builds.

Great playing John, now I'm lusting after a tenor guitar.

Thanks, Dave. The tenors are great to play and I feel they are very good for playing Scottish-flavoured tunes, as is the octave. That bit more sustain than the mandolin and an octave lower.
