GFW Mandolin

GFW Monday Slow Session

Each Monday evening before the GFW classes, I run a slow session for any and all students of the GFW classes. For each night I have scheduled a tune or set which will be particularly concentrated on each evening. These tunes are available to download, and can be used by any of the students or tutors.
