Something new for me! Cello is by far my primary instrument but I’ve had this mandocello for years and enjoy playing it. I had the idea for this song this summer and have been working on it off and and on. The name of it references the experience of wishing or hoping for something in life beyond you, above you, in the future, or maybe imagined.

Please let me know what you think!

What is that thing I’m playing? The mandocello is a rare beast. It’s a member of the mandolin family, which parallels the violin family in terms of string tuning. So the mandocello has the same strings as a cello, just doubled. This particular one has basically a guitar body (with electric pickup), but more traditional ones look like big mandolins.
