    Default Erik Satie - Gnossienne Number One on mandola and mandocello

    I tuned the mandocello Bb F D A, I suppose I could have dropped the D to C and the A to Ab.

    "Mean Old Timer, He's got grey hair, Mean Old Timer he just don't care
    Got no compassion, thinks its a sin
    All he does is sit around an play the Mandolin"

    I see your tag line quote of "Mean Old Timer, He's got grey hair....." is that a song ? and if so, where can one find it.

    Many thanks

    way off track here but Yes Markd, it is a song about yours truly


    is available from Blind Crow www.blindcrowband.com/music

    Ryan Delaney on Fiddle and Vocals, Jeff Wasbes Guitar and Vocals, Eric Margan Bass and The mean old timer himself on mandolin

    I wrote the words and Ryan wrote the tune.

    Blind Crow was a local Albany NY String band, we did a lot of progressive stuff like Dawg music and Tony Rice, as well as traditional Bluegrass, and plenty of original creations.
    We are all kind of doing other things at the moment, but who knows.

    Very nice!

    Are you familiar with the Melonious Quartet's album of Erik Satie pieces arranged for mandolin quartet? Lovely record.
