  3. Re: Top classical pieces every mandolin player should know

    That's understandable. Everyone is different. But me I can't really contain my joy every time I hear the Thile play the tempo di bouree vii movement from the b minor partita. It's just too beautiful.

    This is the one I was telling you about. He's a multi instrumentalist. He's pretty good on the violin and guitar. But I don't like his mandolin playing or his music over all
