Further Indulgence

I have downloaded the Audible sound recording open source software, and I am beginning to get the hang of it. I've now mastered two track recording (well...overdubbing), so I thought I'd make a festive recording with my mandolin (it seems tiny compared with the octave) in duet with itself. All I now need to do is to master the playing a bit better. Anyway, here it is - Silent Night.

I fitted the carbon fibre reinforcing rods to the neck of the Les Paul, and made a start on the electronics. These are a bit confusing as I have got three diffrent wiring plans! Still, I've made my choice and done a bit of soldering. And now the indulgence...I thought I ought to have a soundfile of the octave mandola, so I've uploaded up a song - its written by Flogging Molly but mangled a bit here!
