    Thanks to all for your kind words. Special thanks to Martin for his fine mandocello recording. Very well played!
  2. Spring Suite, May 2019 for OM or Mandocello

    I just posted a new solo piece for big mandolins at my So Many Tunes blog titled Spring Suite, May 2019. This is a follow-up to the Winter Suite that I posted back in February.

    It's another simple...

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Clearly these guys were all having fun but, for me, the more interesting thing is the music played. The tune was pretty generic seeming but the playing of it made it something really interesting.

    Re: CMSA Newbie: Advice Needed!

    Phil, this will be my 21st CMSA convention. My first was in 1990 when our Louisville Mandolin Orchestra was the host. I can say that over the years the friendly atmosphere has been remarkably...

    Re: free trio and solo music from Evelyn

    Evelyn, I'm very sorry to hear that you are ill and need to step back from the joys of playing the mandolin and arranging and composing for it. Your work is greatly valued by many people I know. I...

    Re: Mandolin classical literature

    Carl, it's true that when I said "for all practical purposes" in my earlier message I wasn't thinking of interlibrary loan. But it's also true that OCLC/Worldcat only shows 19 holdings worldwide for...

    I will attach a sample PDF of the front matter and the last page of Joshua Bell's book here. It took me forever to find it. It was tucked away in a folder that also includes my copy of Paul Sparks'...

    Re: John Goodin mandolin duets

    Martin, thanks again for making these tunes sound good. I enjoyed hearing "Ekin Avenue" with mandocellos, a very nice arrangement.

    As always, your choice of images is fun but I especially...
  11. Re: Land of Living Skies by the Regina Mandolin Orchestra

    Unfortunately, no. While northeast Iowa is closer to Regina than most parts of the U.S. it is still pretty far away. The video is almost as good as being there though.
  12. Land of Living Skies by the Regina Mandolin Orchestra

    Here's a video from May 20, 2019 of the Regina Mandolin Orchestra performing a piece that I wrote for them over last winter. I was honored to be asked to write them some music for their 30th...

    Here's a video (thanks to Michael Tognetti) of a group of 2018 CMSA convention attendees with a couple of generous recorder players (wrangled by Alice Derbyshire) performing the second movement of a...
  14. Re: Grisman "Shalom Aleichem" for Mando Orchestra?

    I was fortunate enough to be an early member of the Louisville Mandolin Orchestra when it began in the late 1980s. In the fall of 1988 we were featured, along with the Modern Mandolin Quartet and Sam...
  15. Re: New classical release from Joel Hobbs & Jonathan Rudie - Vesp

    I received my physical copy of this CD a couple of days ago but I've been listening to it from my streaming service since it was available. This is a recording full of beauty and light. I can't...

    Re: We Banjo 3 - new video just out

    What a fine song and video! Thanks for the heads up.

    btw, yesterday fiddler Fergal Scahill played his Tune of the Day on mandolin. It sounds great and is worth a listen.

    Re: John Goodin mandolin duets

    Martin, thanks once more. This is a really fine recording of my piece. The Ceccherini sounds especially good on this.

    I like your description of this as coming from my "occasional series", that...

    Re: John Goodin mandolin duets

    Martin, thanks once again for producing such a fine recording of one of my tunes. In this case I'm twice-honored because Eveyln chose to create this excellent arrangement and include it in her book....

    Thanks very much for catching this long-lost bad link. I was just complaining today about people who change their websites and don't update their links. Karma, I guess.

  22. Re: New Piece for Octave Mandolin or Mandocello

    Martin, thanks very much for these mandocello recordings. It's great to hear those low notes! I know just what you mean about that chord in the Saraband, I may end up changing that. You can hear that...
  23. Re: New Piece for Octave Mandolin or Mandocello

    Hi Martin,

    Yes, you are correct. The two versions are a fifth apart and are not intended to be played together by an octave and cello duo. The fingerings are the same for each instrument and the...
  24. New Piece for Octave Mandolin or Mandocello

    I just added this note as a reply to the Original Music for Solo Mandocello thread but then I realized that some Octave Mandolin players might not read that thread and they might be interested in...
