    Re: Guitar to mandocello conversion idea

    I bought a big Epiphone conversion dreadnaught just for travel (I have a 1911 Gibson K4 I would never take on a plane); it was in the case, the case tipped over at a train station, the head snapped...
  3. Re: Spring Suite, May 2019 for OM or Mandocello

    See you in a few days John, and I hope you'll play some of your suite for our Solo Mandocelllo session. I'm too busy trying to play the orchestra music!

    Re: New Bickford Mando-cello Method

    I would be able to do some proofing AFTER the CMSA convention (early October). I work with doctoral dissertations so I do a lot of proof reading and editing, but I see a lull in the next couple...
  6. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    I do understand the conflict between "music belongs to everyone" and "How does a composer make a living?" When I was a college choral director we were required to have valid paid-for copies (no...
  7. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Re: Bickford Mandocello Method

    As I said in another post, people working much harder on this than I am! Thanks for your dedication, John.
    As far as furthering the work, you should know that August Watters will be publishing a...

    Re: CMSA Newbie: Advice Needed!

    Thanks for the plug Phil; Yes, John will be at the MC session--I hope he will be playing his new suite for mandocello, he's probably a better player than me. Victor will not be there, but I am...

    Re: Bickford Mandocello Method

    I have a few excerpts and modern-edited pages I used in my CMSA mandocello workshop last year. You should think about attending this year's convention in Normal IL. There will be more new MC music...

    Re: It's Mandocello time at CMSA

    Hope you can make the workshop. Yes, I've been concentrating on the solo stuff, but last weekend played in a quartet and it's a whole different experience. I'm not a great player, but they're always...
  16. "Bigger mandolin family members" at CMSA

    I posted this in the CBOM forum for obvious reasons, but I thought it might reach some Classical players here as well.

    Again, not much to do with CBOM, but a very interesting and enlightening discussion. Sometimes the hold-outs are quite intentional. Are you familiar with the motto "L'Algiers est la France" used by...

    Re: New five course mandocello

    I see; too bad it's not still on the market. But I have too much invested in my K4 to think about another big instrument.
    Actually, only Americans from New Jersey have an accent. ;)
