    Hey, I got a wedding gig and developed a need for Sheri's book. I went through it and eyeballed 42 tunes that I either knew or looked interesting, and then sat down with my guitarist pal to start playing through them. Not a bad one in the bunch! — Sheri's arrangements are thoughtful and pretty easy to follow. Well worth the $.

    Being late to the party is no matter...still means you're at the party.

    As SRV said "If the house is rocking, don't bother knocking...."

    But this party has been going on for a looooong time, with no sign of letting up.

    Mille grazie a Sheri!

    Does anyone think this discussion belongs in a different area, like the one dedicated to Italian music? European folk seems like a pretty big category when there's a specific sub forum entitled Orchestral, Classical, Italian, Medieval, Renaissance .

    Yes, it probably does. OTOH, I wanted to evangelize those not already engaged in playing Italian born composers. Fine with me to move it. I think I've made a deep inroad and attracted many who never ventured into the Italian realm. Thx, Sheri

    for all those Mando nerds, here's a link to download the Italian music catalogs, listings, and title pages.
    Today, I jfinally got around to adding the complete "O. Pagani Mandolin Trio" music catalog (in two parts). It was published sometime in the 1950s under Theresa Costello's reign as owner/publisher of Pagani sheet music.

    Again, any trouble downloading any PDFs, let me know. Have fun, Sheri

    Hello Sheri, I've tried to open the links to your dropbox but they won't open. I also went onto your facebook page but there is no link to make a friend request
    so I was wondering if the dropbox stuff still exists.
    Kind regards
    Dot

    Don't use links that were posted before 2018, many, if not most, are expired.

    If you go to Post #408, April 22, 2018, I believe everyone of those links take you to a specific Italian publisher. All of them are working for me.

    Of course, you must have the Index downloaded first so that you can browse according to title and see what appears with which publisher. The nice thing about the Index as a PDF is that you can choose how you want to organize your sheet music (by composer, by title, by publihser)

    I've attached the Index just in case you haven't downloaded one. This August index is the most recent.

    Happy Holidays! Sheri

    Hello I would be grateful for suggestions for beginner/early intermediate Ballo-Liscio or Bal-Musette tunes for mandolin or tenor banjo - I'm a fan of Frank Fazio and Giovanni Gioviale but the pieces are probably too difficult for me right now! Thanks

    Sheri is your selfless source for this...as she is for many of us, too.

    I play from her "Mandolin Melodies" and "French Soiree" nearly every day.

    First, I also suggest the"Silent fountain" mandolin tunes

    http://www.brucezweig.com/music/matteo/

    mp3's and sheet music

    These are lovely tunes that are not hard to play.

    Now, out of the Ballo Liscio collections, a few of my favorite "easy" tunes ( as in not lots of fast runs, extreme range, etc) are:

    from A._Paolilli_PDFs_A-Z:

    Dolci_Ricordi_M1

    Felicita_M1

    La_Canzone_dell'Usignolo_M1

    My_Golden_Star_M1

    Occhi_Belli_M1

    Un_Bel_Sogno_M1

    from Antonio_Grauso_PDFs_A-Z:

    Margaretella_M1p1_w_chords

    Primavera_M1p1

    Una_Sera_a_Portici_M1p1_w_chords

    from G._de_Stefano_PDFs:

    G._de_Stefano_PDFs

    Angel's_Souvenir_M1_w_chords

    Clementina_M1_w_chords

    La_Vita_Allegro_M1_w_chords

    Te_Sola_M1_w_chords

    from O._di_Bella_PDFs_A-Z:

    A_Santa_Cecilia_M1

    Amore!_M1

    Angel's_Dream_M1

    Calabrisella_M1

    Che_Ridere_M1

    Ciribiribin_&_Bersaglieri_M1

    Danube_Waves_M1

    Delirio_D'Amore_M1

    Golden_Star_M1

    La_Bella_Palermo_M1

    Maria_ Mari_O_Sole_Mio_M1

    Marsala_Mia_M1

    Parla_D'amore_M1

    Rose_M1

    Sicilianedda_Mazurka_M1

    Teodoro_M1

    Torna_a_Surriento_&_Uocchie_M1

    Vita_Palmeritana_M1

    from O._Pagani_PDFs_A-Z:

    This is a small selection but it will get you started.

    ukcarrie, Here’s a few tunes that are relatively easy & charming. Also, I am thinking in terms of variety.
    Vieni Sul Mar- a Waltz
    Tic Toc Polka- a Polka
    Tango of the Roses- a Tango
    Funiculi, Funicula- a Tarentella rhythm tune
    La Donna e Mobile- An Opera song
    These were favorites on my Italian gigs. You’d have a nice little program to entertain family & friends. I would think they would be in Sheri’s vast collection. They are common enough tunes you could find a copy.
    Even if you don’t pick these suggested tunes, it’s a good idea, as you scour through various collections, to select tunes in different keys & tempos & time signatures.

    I would suggest discussing a short selection of dances with your teacher. S/he will be able to evaluate what is best for your level and technical knowledge. I would start with waltzes (not mazurkas, which tend to be on the more difficult side), and avoid most polkas, and all tarantellas. Best to you, Sheri

    Thank you Sheri, I really like waltzes. I'm sorry for my ignorance but is there a link to a 'contents' for your Drop Box of tunes - it looks like there are different folders for different artists but not sure how best to navigate what has been uploaded.....many thanks

    UKCarrie, we've leaned heavily to Italian music (due to the mandolin connection) but there are some bal mussette (okay, Piaf) tunes that can be intimidating on the fisarmonica (just ask me....) but I find to be pretty accessible on mandolin:

    Sous la Ciel de Paris
    La Vie en Rose
    La Goulante de Pauvre Jean

    UKCarrie, each folder is organized by the name of the specific Italian dance publisher. You need the Index to find which dance title appears in which publisher's folder.
