    Re: Cracks between ribs on bowlback

    That profile and construction look like the piece may be a relatively high-end Roman instrument. If so, very desirable. If you don't mind sharing, who's the maker?

    I may be missing it, but I...

    RE:


    Chords are usually inherent in western art music, at least in tonal music from the Renaissance on, even if "Gmaj7" or the like isn't explicitly written on the score. You pretty quickly...

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    Regarding tablature, I use it all the time for lute and baroque guitar music (because that's the storage medium in which that music was originally composed, albeit earlier incarnations of tab). I...

    Good point. They can be, but those terms aren't necessarily synonymous.

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    Fantastic! In my current line of work, I've always been employed by academia, but I did a lot of fisheries and wetland ecology research on the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge early in my career.

    Re: Process of learning a classical tune

    I suppose there's no reason you couldn't learn a "classical" tune using whatever method you use for other tunes in general. However, there's always potential for transcription error if by ear. ...

    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    My copy of Solo arrived late this morning. I've listened and enjoyed. Previously, I'd only had a bootleg video of her interpretation of Leone's variations on "L'Aves Vous Mon Bien Aime," so I'm...

  14. Re: Please help! Newbie looking for bowlback to learn on!

    It unfortunately is, Steve. The worm wheels on these were simply peened onto their posts. Too often, the joint eventually slips. I had similar under-coverplate tuners on my ca.1907 style 225. ...

    I even like the rather stylized, Renaissance-inspired dragons.

    Wow. I'm not sure I can still call you a friend. [Teasing, of course.] The visual aesthetics of Embergher's profiles, the grace of line, may be what I find most appealing about his (and...

    Re: String confusion for L&H model A

    For what it's worth, I only think of the GHS "classical" set in the do-no-harm category. I'm not at all fond of the sound, their intonation seems less consistent across the set's gauges, and they...
  18. Re: Please help! Newbie looking for bowlback to learn on!

    Agreed, of course. That, in part, is why I added the caveats of "obviously" and "usually."

    Above, note that Dalla Casa's use of tablature was inverted in comparison to the typical modern practice.

    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    I saw that Caterina has recorded a Sauli partita here. Can anybody let me know what mandolin type she used in recording it? . . . or the other instruments beyond the Gibson mandola mentioned above?...

    Re: Looking at Japanese bowl back

    PS: The nicer Suzuki pieces tend to feature much less decoration, have oval holes, and were obviously influenced by Calace.
