    Re: Norman and Nancy vid

    Just wonderful. She has such a nice touch. Well done, Nancy. I love the Blake Mandolin instrumentals. They don’t sound like standard run of the mill fiddle tunes, with lots of speedy notes. They...

    Well, we can hope for the best on such a grand plan.
    A couple of years ago my wife & I were returning home from a weekend in Michigan. On a whim, we decided to exit in Kalamazoo to find the...

    Re: Mandolino toscano

    Thanx & thanx, Eugene. I was curious on your historical perspective. Of course, I’m always open to find what works for me & have a go at it. I’ve heard the Baroque Mandolin live & on record & been...

    Re: Gilchrist

    I’ve played several & been up close & personal with a few Gilchrists. I thought they’ve all been outstanding. Carter’s in Nashville has had a Gilchrist F2, oval hole, for sale for a while. I don’t...

    Re: Mandolino toscano

    Thanx, Eugene, for your usual historic postings. I have a rather surface knowledge of the various early Mandolins designs. I have mused that I’d like to have a Tuscan Mandolin, 4 gut strings, tuned...

    Chick Corea RIP

    Chick Corea was one of the giants of Jazz since the 60’s. Composer, improviser, band leader, Chick was a major talent. I saw him in an early version of Return to Forever. So exciting & fresh on the...

    Re: Where to start with Jazz Mandolin?

    Yes, David, very concisely put.
    We can all recommend for you to listen & learn everything on our favorites lists, from Honeysuckle Rose to Night in Tunisia. Yes, you should. Some of those tunes may...

    Re: Where to start with Jazz Mandolin?

    Wonderful advice from one & all. Great tunes & approach’s to pursuing Jazz.
    Going back to the initial question, what standard to learn, what standards to you like? What standard can you sit & hum...

    Re: La Fürstenberg

    Clarification please:
    I have a copy of the La Fustenberg Variations that I got from Plucked Strings ages ago. I think it matches the vonbiber & taboot posts. I will occasionally pull it out &...

    Re: Tiny Moore Tuesday

    Hayes, Great choice & well executed as usual. Tiny gets a little boppish in bar 7, a 5 to a b5 sub (D7 to Ab7) lick, leading back to the 1. That’s my read on it, very hip. Hope that isn’t too Jazz...

    Re: Vitti 'Na Crozza

    I’ve watched this evolution you guys have had to go through on the Barbers LP. Unfortunate it was such a hassle. I could have offered to send you my digital dub of the album, but didn’t know if that...

    Re: Mandolin G + D octave strings

    It can be fun. Like Ronald said, if you have more than one Mandolin you could leave one with octaves. I’ve done it a few times for a Bluesy Carl Martin effect. Just temporarily. I wouldn’t use for...

    Re: Vitti 'Na Crozza

    You’re right, David. When I first heard the Vitti track it reminded me of one of the Barbers tunes. They are different. I never heard a vocal of Sciuri.
    Thanx, bro, for clarifying.
    Jairo, cool you...

    Re: Vitti 'Na Crozza

    Love It.
    This tune is played as an instrumental by the title Sciuri-Sciuri on the album Mandolino by the San Domenico Barbers of Taormina. My absolute favorite Italian Mandolin record. Exquisite....

    Re: Dorian Pentatonic Scale (1 2 m3 5 M6 )

    Thanx, Niles.
    As a supplement video, check out Guitarist, Jens Larson’s Coltrane patterns from a couple of years ago. I think he did an update recently. All powerful ideas.

    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    David, yes shared opinions again, bro.
    In addition to the Neapolitan tunes adding those Italian pop tunes would usually go over good. Another is More, the Mondo Cone theme. I originally learned it...

    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    The Godfather, either the Love theme or the Waltz. People would recognize both. I am dating myself here. This does go back to 70’s early 80’s in New York, when the movie was still in the public...

    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: 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,
