    entered "fmri playing music" search and got more papers, study reports, and articles than I can list here.
    Try that and...
  2. Re: Joel Hobbs, "Ode to Elsie": Robert Margo, liuto cantabile

    Your performance at Kalamazoo was excellent, but I like it even better on the larger instrument with the added depth and registers.

    Re: post a video of yourself

    With your knowledge of so-called "world" music (what music isn't?) I wonder if this is in a specific style or form...? Keep the contributions coming to expand the mandolin/plucked instrument world,...
  4. Re: My latest build: A Mandocello/Liuto Cantabile/Cittern hybrid

    Beautiful; Can't wait to get this in my hands and figure out just how to play it! I will post a follow-up video, but will probably need a little time to get used to the 5th string course. THANK YOU...

    Re: Cannot Name This Chord

    I used to teach AP music theory, but it was based in the classical European tradition. Chords were analyzed in terms of intervals, not on which note was on the bottom or top.
    Anyway, when I started...

    Re: CMSA Kalamazoo 2022: Registration Now Open

    For the last 2 virtual conventions we did put together a mandocello quartet and played a couple of originals. I did hear from a few bass clef colleagues who expressed an interest, but because I am...
  11. Re: Bach/Marcello Adagio in D minor BWV 974 Minus One Mandocello

    Have you considered bringing this to the Kalamzoo CMSA convention in a couple weeks? There will be around 17 mandocello players and still room in the open mic. We have done MC quartets, but you go...

    Re: Italian Mandolin music being forgotten ???

    Brian Oberlin will be playing at the CMSA Kalamzoo Convention and will be playing Prelude for solo Mandolin - Giuseppe Sollima. Now that's Italian--and pretty virtuosic.
  13. Re: Mandolin cover of Kanye West Hip Hop/Rap

    Very adventuresome on your part and nicely done. I get tired of people who look like me--old white guys-- saying "I like ALL kinds of music........ except RAP!" Why don't you try Coolio's "Gangsta's...

    Jo, I know you had the world music radio program, but I still wonder where and how you find so much varied and interesting music. Recordings? Travel? Printed sheet music?

    Re: My latest baroque mandolin
