more swedish music

i'm a huge fan of swedish folkies lena willemark and ale moller. he plays a
really cool mando cello thing that has holes all over the neck, into which
he inserts little thingys that act like capos for individual strings. he 
capo every string at a different fret and have open strings for some chords
but keep the relationships between the strings consistent. it's pretty 
i think the guy that does the mod for him has a patent on the thing.
