    Cheers, Jim. I find playing earlier incarnations of mandolin a bit revelatory . . . and big fun.

    I again thank you for your kind words, August. The one I posted there had the benefit of some very slight revisions after posting here. I am thus attaching that slightly revised version here.

    An article on historic stringing

    For the few nerds who may care about historic mandolins, I'm hoping to digest this one more fully in the near future: Mimmo Peruffo's Aquila Corde blog entry on mandolin strings.

    Wedding request. I'd prefer this piece be performed in duo (or, as originally written, as a trio). However, in being contracted as a soloist this outing, this seemed a more convincing approach to...
