    Re: Rudy Cipolla

    I see the Aquella Negrita Impetuosa for mandocello part is in treble clef; I am collecting and promoting music for the mandocello (CMSA 2018 & 2019 workshops) and would be happy to transcribe this to...

    [QUOTE=Mandophile;1762548] "Cipollyana" was composed/arranged in the summer of 1970 for Ken Culver's Portland (Oregon) Mandolin Ensemble.
    I am curious about this piece as a current (virtual of...

    Re: An article on historic stringing

    Incredible scholarship and technical information. Even though it is beyond my range of "doing anything" with this, I am impressed. Too many people take what is in front of them and assume "it's...

    When I proposed a mandocello workshop at the CMSA convention a few years ago, people told me there was no music for mandocello, only transcriptions. Mandocello was largely thought of as providing an...

    Re: Gervasio sonatas

    Intrigued by the basso continuo part; probably not period-authentic (?) but might fit my mandocello. Is sheet music published?
    [edited 5 minutes later:] I should have searched before asking. Found...
  6. Re: Oregon Mandolin Orchestra Galop(s) through the Covid Quaran

    Ain't we a good-lookin' group? Thanks for all the tech work on this, Mike and Christian. Does not replace the fun and excitement of playing in the room together, but a great relief from practicing in...

    Re: CMSA Virtual Mini-Conference

    We'd love to have you; maybe you could show me how to do that "crab chord" on a mandocello.

    CMSA Virtual Mini-Conference

    The board and the tech people of this fine organization deserve a huge thank you for their work in setting up this event. The workshops, performances, and meeting rooms were such a refreshing break...
  9. Re: San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra Virtual performance

    Thank you Peter;We're doing a similar thing with Oregon MO, waiting for Mike Tognetti to sync it all up--he does tech for us and CMSA. A bunch of us mandocello players are fooling around with...
  10. Re: San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra Virtual performance

    Very cool! Somehow the joy of the music comes through even though the players are in different places and at different times. That says a lot about the music itself, the players, and the conductor. I...

    Re: J. S. Bach The Cello Suites for Mandolin

    I understand SLT's question, and I think a possible answer is simply that many people have mandolins, fewer people have mandocellos. That is improving, though--we had 25 in the orchestra at the last...

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    I still say look for patterns: let's say the piece begins with a rising scalar figure (as in C E F A or Do Mi Fa La..); then what? Does it come back down, or extend at the higher range? Does it do a...

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    This thread is of great interest to me as a music education researcher; and although I don't want to sound arrogant, I do want to say my comments (you can call them opinions if you want) are based on...

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    Here's one idea that might help, but first a caution about "learning by ear" if you mean just listening to a recording. Listening to a recording leaves you with the impression "that's how it goes,"...
  15. Re: i am having problems with "clefs" again. Treble or alto

    I always recommend reading clefs as is; I found gimmicky work-arounds such as "Alto clef is like G clef but one note lower" or something like that just as confusing as learning the new clef. Marcus...
  16. Re: The Hampton Trio: FB Live at the Vanilla Bean Cafe, TONIGHT

    Great music and ensemble playing. Sound quality and balance was surprisingly good for a casual outdoor streetside patio setting (motorcycles aside). You really rocked on the protests songs.

    Sorry I missed it; I have not been checking the cafe as much lately. Is there a video?

    Your patience and completion of the chore are greatly appreciated, as is this fun performance. As a retired conductor, I'm wondering if my former job has been eliminated; shouldn't we include...

    Re: Mandocello Envy

    Nice meditative piece, and the quiet but steady 5 string motion is beautiful.
  22. Re: The Ranieri Method: full introduction and tremolo, by Ralf Le

    A thoughtful and scholarly presentation, capped off with some beautiful artful playing. Going to look into Ranieri--did not see the IMSLP link, maybe on youtube outside Cafe site? People interested...

    Re: Bach--Gigue from Suite #3 in C major

    Is that a 10-string cittern, liuto cantabile, or what? Sounds great; I have a very fine mandocello (1911 K4) but that extra string really interests me.
    Nice baroque style, wonderful playing; love...

    Re: August Watters - two books arrived today

    Rob, alto clef doesn't relate to tuning--C is the middle line no matter how you're tuned. The orchestral parts would be written with the assumption you are tuned CGDA, just like a viola, so I think...
