  1. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Thanks to a very helpful suggestion from Michael Gregory, I've tweaked the "mandolin players' favourite sets" section so that as well as listing the tunes in the set, I include a link to the relevant...
  2. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Hi Louise... lovely to hear my tune described in such glowing terms. When it first came to me -almost a case of the tune writing itself! - I wasn’t sure if it would move others in the way it spoke...

    A few updates.

    I have made a few tweaks to the homepage which, hopefully, provide a better explanation to visitors how the various parts of the site link up and enable better navigation!

  7. Strange mandolin on eBay... seen one of these before?

    First time I’ve ever seen a twin-tuned or dual-tuned mandolin. Never even heard of one before. But I know this eBay seller and he mentioned In an email a few weeks ago that he was about to restore...

    Hi Kevin

    Many thanks for the comments. Much appreciated.

    Regarding the website. I'm genuinely puzzled by the paypal link issue which you mention. I've had a look at the source widget in...

    Absolutely delighted to say that Jill has taken enormous time and trouble - despite having a lot on her plate! - to record four tracks which I've now posted to The Irish Mandolin. All are stunning. ...

  13. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Thanks, Jill. Good to hear that you're making progress. Onwards and upwards hopefully. No rush on "our earlier conversation" ... just thought I'd mention it, given that we are in contact again. ...
  14. Re: help not-quite-intermediate player put together a tune set

    Hi. There is absolutely no reason why a tune set should comprise any more than two tunes if you’re happy that two tunes “say” all you want to say.

    In fact, and this is merely a personal opinion,...
  15. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Right - so I've found that "electric" version of A Tune For Fee and I've posted it to the site. And I've included sheet music for all other tunes in the original tunes section of the site. Thanks...
  16. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    PS - John. Thanks for the comment about sheet music. I'll add sheet music versions of the other tunes in the "original tunes" section of the site. I don't read dots myself, so often overlook the...
  17. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    John ... thank you very much for your comment. I think I'm with you that it doesn't really matter so much what the "tune type" is. Interestingly, I sometimes play this at a much MUCH slower pace...

    Two splendid tunes arrived with me over the weekend, from Roy Johnstone. Flatworld - a waltz composed by the excellent melodeonist Andy Cutting - and Millie's Waltz, composed by Roy himself. Well...

  24. Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~£500($700)?

    Wow Ray ... didn’t know that. Shame. They stocked some very tasty instruments - mainly guitars - and were such a mainstay of the London music scene. Shows how often I get up west these days! ...
