    Re: Orchestra

    I play with an orchestra and I think you should give it a try! Reading standard notation is essential but I see you’ve played viola and flute so that should help. Being able to find the notes on...

  4. Re: Basic Question: Vivaldi Concerto in D major RV 93

    Look for the YouTube videos of Catarina Lichtenberg or Avi Avital. They both appear to be picking those notes rather than pull off. But certainly is your choice.
  5. Re: Al Capone's Waltz on Peter Coombe Classical Flattop

    Based on a hint on Eric’s YouTube channel I found the Bil Bol Vals recorded in 1918 and played by Sundquist and Berg. https://archive.org/details/78_bil-bol-vals_sundquist-och-berg_gbia0310777a

    Nice mandolin and nice Swedish waltz! Does the waltz have another name?
  7. Re: What is the difference between a trill and a hammer-on?

    Here is an interesting explanation of using hammer-ons and pull-offs for trills on classical guitar. She makes the point that there are sometimes trills that have to be sustained so the hammer-on /...

    +1 on the Starer book. I have a fun little app called the Rhythm Sight Reading Trainer by Rolfs Apps. It puts up an exercise in standard notation and you tap it out with your finger in time to a...

    Sounds like Mike is riffing on this 4/4 version of the Tennessee “Waltz”. Channeling Joe Pass?

    Re: Mandolin Sleigh Ride

    Here is the Regina Mandolin Orchestra with a super version! At CMSA in 2018 I had the pleasure of sitting near their conductor, Natalia, and some of their players. Great group!
  15. Re: Should a Beginner use a Marco Rebora Mandolin?

    David Brown has given great advice above; i.e., think about what you want to play! The video is of another David, last name Hynds. David Hynds restores old mandolins. I bought my restored Calace...

    Re: Little Sadie

    I enjoyed that! Tried to play this with a band a few years back and that 2 4 measure always challenged us. Nice JJW shirt, too!
  17. Re: New double concerto for mandolin and mandola

    I enjoyed that! I looked closely on a big monitor and I see a mic stand at the right knee of the mandolin and mandola. There is a speaker on the left just behind the violins and another on the...

    In what Jim uploaded, I see staccato marks on the eighth notes at the beginning of the second to last line. In the measures just before there is a phrasing mark that means tremolo. So at the...

    Re: Mahler 7 Tonight (7/7/20)

    That’s a very enjoyable performance!

    Tom, any insights into why Mahler included a mandolin? In looking at the score it is used sparingly. (Must be fun counting all of those rests.) I played a...

    Re: Which strings for a 1915 bowlback?

    Not on your list but GHS A240 ultra light are a good choice. They are 9-32 as pops1 suggests. Heavier strings can damage a bowlback and render it unplayable.

    Re: How to enhance mando for legato piece

    That’s a cool project! Are you playing the entire piece or part of it? The entire piece does not look easy. In the Violin 2 part on IMSLP, some places are marked as tremolo. I agree with David that...
