    Re: Music from Central France

    Slight regional deviation ... listening to all this great stuff reminds me of when I first moved to Barcelona. I got turned on to an iconoclastic group called Kalakau, who, along with hurdy-gurdy...

    Re: PLEASE! A few Mandola pieces

    Although not in the Joe Walsh/Shlapanitsa/TM Sweeney league, I did a track a while ago in which I used the John Reischman trick of octave-stringing my dola, meaning it's still in CGDA, but I...

    Thanks as always for the glimpse into what came before, and how they influenced modern designs - fanned frets aren't a new innovation, obviously. :) Was this the request of a client, or just you...

    Re: Breaking into Mandola...by mandolin?

    Hi Joe, I followed a similar path. After playing mandolin for a while, I got more & more curious about dolas, but wasn't sure if I could change over to CGDA. I got a funky French double-top...
