Description
Plaisir D'Amour played like if Tim Burton allowed Johnny Depp to play it in one of his films....slightly quicker and a little darker than it is normally played....the mandolin is firstly finger plucked and then a plectrum is used....one for us to probably quietly contemplate ,nod and then with a shudder move on....not quite right....but a bit fun......................... The artwork....I have no idea ...it's just a bit French !!

Plectrum sounds
like Speculum to me. Accordion...I'll only listen to it for you. The Pleasure of Love, huh?
You are very talented, Chris. Thanks.

Pick then....I guess
that over there,your sideof the pond that they do not use the word plectrum that much as I have recieved puzzled reactions before....but
speculum...that sounds clinical !!

Cheers

A pleasant evening at the cafe! Digging your accordion playing! Nice trills and quick runs on the mandolin.

Accordion and mandolin--two of my favorite instruments. You're developing some real technique
on mando. This is not an easy piece to play. Lovely chords, melody picking and tremelo. Enjoyed.

Great to hear real instruments at play, Chris. The accordion is such a great sound. I could easily imagine this post in a french film where the lead actors are smoking a gauloise, sipping calvados and watching life go by (probably at 8 o'clock in the morning). The artwork just has to be french, too. Thanks for the package tour :-) Regards, Peter.

Whew ,praise indeed
Thanks ...the artwork was part of an old series of cartoons that I was going to put up on the wall of our old "bistro-ised" dining kitchen
some years ago....never happened sadly....

This could
easily be the cabaret in the Cafe in BBC's 'Hello, Hello'. Chris the improvement in your playing is wonderful and I really admire you for that.... it sounds great as though there's a real band playing and to think you're actually playing each instrument.... top marks for sure, regards M

I do love the two doohickeys I used in this....I should practise the mando more than I do ....I tend to take it down now and again ....but I should do more ...thanks again for the kind words.

Shall we check the Cheeky Chick macine, Vic? I love this. My father in law plays accordion, and for the life of me I have no idea how he or anyone else manages it. Splendid stuff.

Watch that chair leg.
Sounds like you are seafaring duo entertaining at the market near the docs. Some pretty fancy picking going on there Mr. Jarvo. I have an accordion piece in the works (if I could ever finish it) which is partly made with you in mind.

The energy of your playing is simply infectious. Thanks for the post!!

Doug

Hi Chris.... a bad back and enforced time off work led me back here for a listen to a few old fav's. This one has your inimitable style. Steve and I had a great jam with "mandy" and a guitar the other week. You've inspired me to find it and post it later.Hope all is well with you. Like the doodle as well. Cheers Mark
