    Re: John Goodin mandolin duets

    Many thanks for the kind comments!

    John: I like it when tunes have a sense of location and connotations, at least through the title. It adds a cultural hinterland to them and makes it easier to...

  6. Re: That International Rag - Irving Berlin

    That looks good, Andy -- we've been having a lot of fun lately with the Tin Pan Alley songs in Evelyn's latest book, including Irving Berlin's "Simple Melody".

    Re: Vintage Viaten intonation

    This doesn't look right at all. I have just checked the intonation on my own Viaten -- it's just fine on all four strings. 3.5 mm difference in saddle location is a lot, so unless somebody moved...

    Re: Trouble Playing A major

    Don't bother with the 5 on the top string: that's an A which you already have with the 2 on the bottom string. So, 2-2-4-x is a complete A major chord played by putting the first finger as a barre...

    Re: Vintage Viaten intonation

    I have a Viaten, and haven't had any particular intonation issues. However, I use custom gauges and have mine set up for GDAE. I haven't personally tried CGDA tuning but have seen other comments...
  16. Re: Tension of Fisoma Consort strings safe for Embergher?

    On mine as well -- I've been using these strings on my Embergher as well as my 1890s Ceccherini for more than ten years and haven't had any problems. I'm not sure why this would be, but they do seem...

  20. Re: Mandolin sources in Yale University library

    Many thanks for the detailed and thoughtful response, Pieter. Tempo and ornamentation are always delicate subjects with the late Baroque/early Classical repertoire - I'm trying to edicate myself as...
  21. Re: Mandolin sources in Yale University library

    Thanks, Pieter!

    The Palesi sonata is good fun. Without a tempo marking, I had to take a guess at an appropriate tempo, and this felt about right for the piece and my skill level. Obviously given...
