I know exactly what you mean about rushing the tune. I find myself backing off a lot when I think I can play it faster. I took Jason’s advice from one of his videos when he said something along the lines of just slowing it down and try to focus on each note.
Thanks for the response Jason. I got the basic tune from Wayne Erbsen. I just added the shuffle and double stops to the tune.
Fiddled first. Just received the mandolin about 3 months ago from a family member. But real easy to transfer fiddle tunes to mandolin when you get used to frets and picking instead of bowing.

I lost the option to edit this video. This is the same video as the other one “Shortenin’ Bread”. Will delete it as soon as I get the option back again.
Went bare bone tune, shuffle, then shuffle double stop. Fun to play and great exercise for double stops.
Very nice Blucy! Thanks for posting video. I tell ya what, I’ll throw out a video tonight of “Shortenin Bread”. I know it’s a childish song but fun to play.
