    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    Not a mandolin album, but I think MCers will appreciate this one:

    I revisited it this morning, and I was just blown away. It's a really good time :)
  2. Re: Telemann - Con Tenerezza from TWV 41:D3

    Do you have any recommended texts on realizing basso continuo parts? There are so many pieces written for melody + bc, and it would be fun to try those out as a mandolinist with a keyboardist,...

    Re: Stupid string question

    I just restrung my oval hole with La Bella silvers yesterday, and I also hated them at first. I think they're starting to open up, so I can't really tell which way it's gonna go.

    In my experience,...

    Re: Violinist- New to Mandolin- Any Advice?

    I second the recommendation for Eastman oval holes, as well as the recommendation for trying out a bunch of picks of varying shapes and thicknesses. Strings by Mail lets you purchase picks...
  5. Re: Skill Progression/Benchmarks, MAS and Instrument Upgrades

    I bought my first mandolin about eight years ago. It was kind of an impulse buy, and it was maybe the second cheapest option available. It seemed OK to me at the time. I actually remember going into...
  6. Re: Seeking a virtual program where we can jam

    The JackTrip website, which jefflester shared earlier, has a really great explainer on internet latency. As others have noted, there's no getting around it, but there are ways to minimize it.

    Re: String comparison forthcoming...

    That's OK, I'm also too scared to change strings or the action height myself! I have a great luthier a couple miles away from me, so I just take my mandolin to him whenever I want anything done,...

    Re: Wet Tuning?

    Peterson has a "sweetener" for mandolin, but I haven't used it. Does anyone know if it is intended to produce a wet effect?

    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    After a cursory Google search, it seems the only surefire way to get more Calvo CDs is direct from the label: https://www.lafollia.com/commande.html

    I think I've listened to Tröster's Nakano album three times in the last two days! Truly amazing. I think I'm going to try learning Drei Studien (as they are seemingly the most approachable of these...

    Re: Mandolin Editions of Classical Pieces

    Thanks for sharing! I'll check this out.

    Just another thing I wanted to throw out there for others' consideration: since I read treble and bass clef, but not alto or tenor clef, I'd love to see...

    Re: Mandolin Editions of Classical Pieces

    Mel Bay and Hal Leonard have a pretty substantial selection of mandolin arrangements/tab of various classical works, but it seems they're mostly in the realm of anthology/sampler. I'm sort of a...
  16. Re: Fingering suggestions, Telemann Violin Fantasia No. 1

    Thanks, Jim. I think you're right—that is probably what a violinist would do. That first chord in m 39—w the 1 on Eb, 3 on D, and 2 on G—is already pretty stretchy for me, so I'm not sure I have the...

    Re: Where To Find a Mandolin

    Hey keitho, I was also a student when I bought my first mandolin. I got what was at the time (nearly) the cheapest instrument available (like, maybe one teensy step above a $50 Rogue). It was a lot...

    Re: Vivaldi F. XII, n, 38 -- looking for CD

    Has anyone listened to this record? I'm revisiting it after seeing this thread. I can't find much info on the ensemble, but I'm fairly certain they're playing modern instruments.

    Re: String comparison forthcoming...

    Oval hole/mahogany? My guess is Eastman MD404. In any case, I am curious to hear how mahogany sounds on a mandolin; I'm so used to the typical spruce/maple combo.

    I've only played medium-gauge...

    Re: String comparison forthcoming...

    I liked the sound of the Pure Nickels when I tried them on my last instrument. My only issues were (a) the 41-gauge G strings were too big to fret comfortably, and (b) the A and E strings tarnished...

    Interesting, I hadn't come across Curt Mangan strings yet. (I mostly shop Strings by Mail.) What were the differences with the three different monels?
