  1. Re: Learn to play multiple instruments at once?

    Sometimes you can find that you are better at something than you expected, but you won't know till you try.

  2. Re: Recordings of Mandolins as String Quartets

    It's good to see the Melonious Quartet (who are French) get a mention. I always thought they were great.
    They don't seem to be active these days, as far as I can see.

    Re: Dagger Gordon video

    This is a tune I really like playing on my 10 string mandolin - The Turn Of The Tide by the late Ian Hardie.

    Re: Irish Tenor Banjo Recordings

    Cathal Hayden is the business, both on fiddle and banjo. I belive he's made a CD called Hooked On Banjo, but I haven't heard it.

    Re: cretan mandolin

    Thanks for this one Cretan.
    I had not heard Giogos play mandolin before. I think he's great on the laouto, but I must say this is a pretty good mandolin workout.

    Re: 10 Questions for Dagger Gordon

    Hi,

    Well I'm all right but of course we are in lockdown along with the rest of the country.

    I wrote the tune for my wife's parents shortly after the birth of our oldest child Colin, who is now 32.

    My wife is American, and her family are based in Connecticut.
