  1. Re: Seattle Mandolin Orchestra: Virtual video of "Yes Yes Honey"

    Well done, excellent fun.

    So, I've been meaning to ask someone about this, but how do get rid of the latency? Does someone have to patiently align dozens of videos after the performance? What a...

    Re: Mongrel Technique

    Thanks for the contributions. I think the general tenor is that there are different strokes for different folks. I think that was always obvious. Less obvious, though, is how you might all interpret...

    Re: Mongrel Technique

    Thanks, Bob. I suspected he did, but wonder if he adapted his technique to all non-tremolo, or did he draw Bach within his own orbit. Part of me is hoping he did the latter, if only for the...

    Re: Mongrel Technique

    Indeed, we can all do what we like, and the old schools do not need to be followed any more, though some choose to do so.

    I would definitely find it odd, though, interpreting a Ranieri edition...

    Re: Mongrel Technique

    Yes, more violin-like. It makes it difficult, trying to play the mandolin under your chin ;-)

    Re: Mongrel Technique

    How different is the Neapolitan style form the Roman, other than the pick? I imagine Calace has something to do with it, no?

    Mongrel Technique

    Most of us will be aware of the "German School" of technique, characterised by angled downwards rest strokes, followed by a single-string up stroke, contrasted by 90 degrees to the string for scale...

    Re: The perfect T-shirt

    Good one! Are the fish are criticising the use of TI flats on an Italian mandolin...?
  9. Re: Mazurka sentimentale (Carlo Munier, 1906)

    Very nice, Martin. I loved the graphics of the first version, but the performance in the second is certainly better.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    Well, there's a huge difference between a Wolle and a Galli. There, you could have sent me the $15, and saved yourself money by not buying them. :cool:

    Re: Take Your Pick

    I have no knowledge, but I imagine the thick rubber pick developed after the Seifert-style instruments appeared on the scene, but when was that? Wider fingerboards, deeper bowl backs and larger...

    Re: Suddenly feeling old

    Anything pre punk is old school, and became instantly old school the moment Never Mind The Bollocks was released...and it too is old school now. Who cares? Not I. Live life, explore music, enjoy.

  15. Re: Duet No. 9 for mandolin & tenor guitar (G.G. Gastoldi, 1598)

    Well done, Martin. That one takes a lot of counting! I've played quite a few similar things from the period, always fun to do. I've never recorded a duet with myself, though, which would probably be...
  16. Re: The Ranieri Method: full introduction and tremolo, by Ralf Le

    Sure, but you could simply subscribe to his YouTube account. Ralf used to be a member here, alas not currently.

    She got a divorce, and changed her name to Weyhofen, so look her up with that surname.

    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    I second No.5, the Tröster Calace Preludes. Stunning, and so very musical.

    Franco, you should post this on the Classical sub-forum of Mandolin Cafe.

    Re: Ranieri recording of The Swan

    Well, recordings were hugely expensive then, and no mistakes were expected, yet we can hear some in many recordings - I'm not thinking of Ranieri here. But I prefer the live feel of old recordings,...

    Re: Where to find a Roman/Ranieri Plectrum?

    Well, my two-packs of Galli plectra arrived half an hour ago. I chose the 70mm medium and the 100mm heavy. They seem good-quality, and cheap with 6 in each pack. The 100mm is warm, the 70mm has...

    Re: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

    I haven't played the piece, but I do have an observation that might be pertinent. Romantic-inspired players tend to use higher positions on inner strings, in contrast to "period-informed" players who...

    Re: Where to find a Roman/Ranieri Plectrum?

    Any good?

    I think my Galli picks are arriving tomorrow. I'll let you know what I think of them. Sorry you can't get them, Joe. I managed to order from their website.
