    Re: Runaway/Texas fiddle tune set

    Aah Winderslide. That was so much fun pairing a mandolin with a tuba.

    I messaged Erynn. She told me she composed it as an exercise for the fiddle tuning EEAE, and explicitly to pair with Texas...

    Re: Discovering the fun of GDGD tuning

    One question to Charles E. I notice that of all the tunes you list, and which I also happen to know, I play in the key of A. So what are you doing? Are you tuning to open G, and then playing these A...

    I love to hear these kind of homemade old tune recordings, and I especially like the harmonizing and the old time push. These two sound great.

    Re: What's your new fiddle tune?

    Oddly, the tune I learned reminds me Not so much of old time, but of the henry mancinii compositions from the 1950's. If I ever get to record it, I’ll do it mid-speed with a strong 50s hipster...

    Re: What's your new fiddle tune?

    I learned it In C from a recording by Henry Barnes. I use the amazing slow downer for learning most tunes. It’s funny you mention The key of D, since it seems way more typical of the world of C...

    Yes, Jim Garber, both are standout tunes for me as well. I seem to be focusing a lot of attention lately on the deep wealth of C tunes composed in the basic style of traditional jazz and often heard...

    Whistlebee took 10 minutes to learn fluently because the melody is so strong. First recorded in 1924 in Alabama by a mr dix.

    Cuffy is great fun,...
  17. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro

    How about mandolin playing melody with just banjo and bass. Great fun. And add a fiddle to let the mandolin play double stop unison melody and sometimes focus only on G and D string double stops or...

    Transposing tunes composed for horns

    I've been playing a bit of 1920's era trad Jazz lately. Not being a facile reader, I learn tunes by repetition using the amazing slow downer (ASD).

    So many of these tunes were recorded in keys...

    I've never heard of that term "hybrid" mandolin. The comments suggest that you simply mean any mandolin that's not a Gibson A. is that correct?
