Thank you Strumelia! You are right, it´s a traditional Swedish dancetune. I first heard it played by Magnus Zetterlund on mandolin (Youtube) with a swing feel. So I tried this also...but I´m not a dancer.

Luigi, this is great!  I always enjoy your videos.  pimento

Is it a traditional/old Swedish folk tune, maybe originally used when dancing?

I notice you play it with what I understand to be a 'swing beat' rhythm- where the last beat of the 4/4 is played before its normal time, cutting the 3rd beat a little short.  I don't hear that too often in really old tunes, so I'm wondering if it's a personal preference that you added for interest, or whether the original tune was actually that way instead of a 'straight' 4/4 rhythm?

Thank you Steve. I was not thinking about a similarity, but you are right, it is the same mode, tonerange and player.

Nice playing, Luigi! This tune is a bit like "Shady Grove".
