    Re: Looking for some new tunes

    Will Patton is great. He's in the Swing to Bop & Gypsy bag. He has several albums. String Theory & 6th St Runaround are both very good.

    Re: Looking for some new tunes

    Jazz Mandolin Project with Jamie Masefield made several albums. Check them out if you’re looking for something different from the more common swing style Jazz Mandolin. They are more of a Fusion...

    Re: Tiny Moore Tuesday

    Welcome back, Hayes, great break. That tune I’ve played as a straight Rag with double stops. Perhaps I should incorporate some Tinyisms.
    Thanx & Happy New Year,

    Re: Tiny Moore Tuesday

    An especially tasty Tiny Tuesday transcription, (an unapologetic alliteration).
    Thanx, again, Hayes.

    Re: Types of Mandolin Collections

    Years ago, when my son was into baseball cards, we met a man who’s goal was to get a card of one player on each team every year. He wanted to follow the uniforms. I thought that was an interesting...

    Re: Gibson H-2 Mandola at Carter's

    Jim, I agree. I was just looking at the photo when your post came thru. Love the look. I, too, would like to know if it’s play & tone match up. Just looking thou.
    A brown F4? Would love it see it....

    Re: Gibson Master Model F5 @ the Mandolin store

    I agree with Jim & Bill. Too often the demonstrators are playing rapid fiddle tune single notes with a few chop chords. It's pretty one dimensional. Yes, some rapid lines are fine. Then some very...

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    As for the physicality of the performance, I believe it was Miles Davis who said when you’re playing Music you should put the rhythm somewhere in your body. Since the suites are made up of different...

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    Interesting thread. Thanx, Jim, for the initial video clip. (I do find the song reference kind of odd, oh well)
    I, too, like to play (amateur attempt) the Cello suites, 1 & 3 mainly. I, like Eugene,...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Never thought about it, but the Vivaldi Double Mandolin with the 2 gentlemen would have been a landmark. They were among the last (if not the last) of their generation of Italian-American Mandolin...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Yes, Eugene, very cool photo. Interesting perspective on the various instrumentation. The recording is unusual sounding. Not Mandolin dominated, but an ensemble with Mandolin solo passages. I rather...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    189729I believe the recording date is 1960(?). It is the Vivaldi Concerto in C for diverse instruments with Mandolins. I still have the vinyl Lp. I found a photo of the back credits, saves me the...

    Re: Larger frets for 1920 Gibson A-4

    I got a ‘17 A4 back in the late ‘70s. I had bigger frets put on at the time. No regrets, I like it better. I’ve used it for Classical to Blues. I’ve acquired a couple more of the vintage Gibson ovals...

    i dig Billy Joe, too. In fact, we do this song in our Bluegrass band. Good tune.
    He was not really on my radar until several years ago. A local music venue does an annual multi-day...

    Yes, good choice. I got my 1917 A4 in the late Ď70s when I lived in New York. I bought it from some guy for around $300. The top is distressed & it did not come with a pick guard or a case, I...

    Another great one. Love this Bob Wills segment, led by Haggard, from the special. Some years back, I was able to snag the audio of the Wills set off Youtube, then divide up the medley into separate...

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    My favorite Mandolins are the old Gibson Ovals, the sound, playability, & looks. I am somewhere in between my friend, David, & the F5 lovers. The first decade or so I played Gibson As. I found them...

    Re: Turns and Mordents

    Yes, like Doug says, time period is important. I’m all for being idiomatically correct. Usually for Baroque/Bach it is recommended to start a trill from the note above the melody & avoid tremolo...

    He played his F5 style electric, with a little humbucker. There is a photo on the back. I saw him play it live a few times. I did get to play it unplugged once. That was cool. There are others who...

    Yes, indeed. I have the vinyl, too. In fact, I have it in a frame on my Mandolin wall. Love his crazed-zany look on the cover. I dubbed it digitally some years back, so it’s in my ITunes & Ipod to...
