  1. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro

    Re: Mandolins in the Movies

    Rudy Cipolla composed for and played on the soundtracks of Capone and Peggy Sue Got Married.

    I think there is a very short video of him playing solo in Peggy Sue Got Married.

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    I listen to Frank Solivan on that Style A about monthly. He really does it justice. The strings look like regular phosphor bronze bluegrass gauge, which I guess is possible on the short scale. I...

    Re: Lyon & Healy mandolin scales

    True, I don't disagree, but there could be other factors too. Strings under more tension could restrict movement of the top, or compress the top and change the instrument's intonation, etc... I think...

    Re: Italian Mandolin music being forgotten ???

    Here's some preview of the album, after about 40 minutes of...other stuff. I think the reason we don't hear much of the italian mandolin is that it takes a stone cold virtuoso to play it. Guggino is...

    Re: Electric mandolin - who's interesting?

    So, I was right, although stupid to think so, but just got lucky. And arrogant to assume that anyone else heard the obvious. OK, got it.

    That could have been a great tune but for that crazy...

    I really miss his Tiny Moore Tuesdays. He made great transcriptions and analysis of Tiny's solos and comping too.

    Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    No mando, but speaking of EC, you know he was influenced by the rockabilly players too. Like Carl Perkins. I would like to hear somebody play some of that on mandocaster.

    Re: Electric mandolin - who's interesting?

    I’m sorry, after reading a little more closely...Yes, you are right, I often tend to assume that what seems obvious to me should also be obvious to everyone else. It’s a failing.

    Re: Electric mandolin - who's interesting?

    Come on, you know that was Byrds-influenced, at the least. Clapton made his bones imitating, and building on, other people's guitar styles.

    But I agree on our comparative tastes. Perhaps I can...

    In principle, I support it. Always ready for something different. In practice, I much prefer his Bach album.

    Re: Electric mandolin - who's interesting?

    I have never been able to get much beyond Baker and Bruce, mainly Baker, on that one. And, oh yeah, they're going for some kind of Roger McGuin effect on top...back to Baker.

    I haven't listened to the new Thile album, but...The banjo definitely has an advantage as a solo instrument, but mandolin I think can work very well too, depending on what you mean. As accompaniment...

    Re: Electric mandolin - who's interesting?

    For me, it works very well for jazz, because any instrument that can play lines, any melodic instrument, is great for jazz and fits right in. For rock, again for me, itís less convincing. The best an...
