    Re: Southern Italian Mandolin

    Hi Mick,

    Yes, John La Barbera has a set of lyrics in his book. Having recently found my copy again, I have just played "La Procidana" as well as "Cu ti lu dissi" and "Ricciulina" for the SAW...

    Re: Southern Italian Mandolin

    The lyrics to "La Procidana" are in the La Barbera book. There are also quite a few text variants online, all differing to a lesser or greater extent from La Barbera and from each other:

  3. Re: Is there any reson to buy a waldzither if you have a mandola?

    There are some waldzithers that were built as 10-strings from the start -- I have one of them (not the one in the video above)! On mine, the original string configuration was 2+2+2+2+1+1, i.e. two...
  4. Re: Is there any reson to buy a waldzither if you have a mandola?

    Difficult to say. If you keep the original (open C) tuning of the waldzither, it's certainly a different experience than a mandola or octave mandolin. If tuned in fifths (or thereabouts), it's...

  6. Re: Haydn's Serenade, mandolin duet (with score)

    I'm revisiting this tune six years after my earlier recording. This is a different arrangement, set for plucked instrument orchstra (bandurrias in this case) by M. Salafranca, from:

    If you absolutely have to have ABC, I would suggest downloading MusicXML scores and converting them to ABC, e.g. using EasyABC:

  8. Re: Display style changes after Google search

    Thanks for that very clear explanation, Scott.

    I've just checked, and my default skin is indeed "mandolin", so the Google result does override the settings in the profile. I haven't yet found a...
  9. Display style changes after Google search

    I noticed that the quick search function now forwards to a Google search rather than an internal results page as previously. That's probably a good idea as it's more powerful for precise expression...

    Re: Orchestral arrangements

    Many thanks, Eoin -- that looks a great collection! Most of the bandurria parts should translate to mandolin and laud to mandola, I think.

    Re: Two dances by J.S. Bach

    Thanks, Joe. Yes, I also enjoy the tone of the Rinaldi -- unexpectely so, as it's a pretty basic instrument. Not particularly complex, but good strong fundamentals.

    To complete the set, here is...

    Two dances by J.S. Bach

    I've just been reunited with two mandolins I had given 15 years ago to my late mother. One of them is a vintage bowlback built in the De Meglio style, but with a label saying "Carlo Rinaldi". My...
  14. Re: Name that TUNE - please help! We're been stumped for years!

    I've just found this thread, and Bill & Scott's great video, when I searched for "Aly's Waltz" on the Cafe after recording the tune for the SAW group (link) -- if anybody is interested, there is a...

    Thanks, Jim -- that's a very nice recording. A transcription of "Vals Bandura" based on this Pawlo Humeniuk recording is also at the same site as linked by Andy earlier:

  17. Re: Ukrainian Tune #1 Waltz in Am staff notation w/ TAB

    Thanks, Mark. Yes, I also prefer "Waltz From Ravishka" among the two tunes I have recorded -- I think mainly because I have played it at a better tempo. For the other one, "Nevil'nyk", I think the...

    The "PDF attachments show up as black rectangles" issue has been around for some years for some (but not all) PDF files. As you say, this just...

    Thanks to David, Andy and Doug for those useful links. I have just recorded two of the tunes from the (great!) site posted by Andy:

    The first is Nevil'nyk, the tune transcribed by David and...
  20. Re: Starting into 3-string closed chords after 4 string open chor

    The big advantage of using closed-position three note chords is that they are moveable, so you really only need to learn very few chords shapes and know where on the fretboard the root is. ...
