    Re: Calace method exercise 52

    Re: Calace method exercise 52

    Hmmm, I think I would find it hard not to start on a down stoke, and since I am going into tremolo and thus picking a lot quicker I think it would be ok. As to what a modern players in the Italian...

    Re: Calace method exercise 52

    Interesting question, but not easy to sort out. It looks to me like the rule given on p. 4 (that tremolo on a new string must begin with a down stroke) will decide the answer in some passages. In...

    Puccini's "O mio babbino caro" solo

    I don't think I've ever shared this here, so here remedied. It's a super-easy (but—I like to imagine—super-effective) duo-style arrangement of Puccini's popular aria. When the aria is extracted,...

    Re: A la Nanita Nana - Christmas carol

    Very nice playing, Hany! I especially like your tremolo. And in the key of a-minor, the mandolin really shines.
    I found a somewhat darker version in d-minor in the sheet music book Volkslieder und...

    There are 19 Pettine compositions in the (now defunct) Nakano archive, mostly for solo mandolin. I downloaded them before it went offline.
