    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Never thought about it, but the Vivaldi Double Mandolin with the 2 gentlemen would have been a landmark. They were among the last (if not the last) of their generation of Italian-American Mandolin...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Yes, Eugene, very cool photo. Interesting perspective on the various instrumentation. The recording is unusual sounding. Not Mandolin dominated, but an ensemble with Mandolin solo passages. I rather...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    189729I believe the recording date is 1960(?). It is the Vivaldi Concerto in C for diverse instruments with Mandolins. I still have the vinyl Lp. I found a photo of the back credits, saves me the...

    Re: Larger frets for 1920 Gibson A-4

    I got a ‘17 A4 back in the late ‘70s. I had bigger frets put on at the time. No regrets, I like it better. I’ve used it for Classical to Blues. I’ve acquired a couple more of the vintage Gibson ovals...

    i dig Billy Joe, too. In fact, we do this song in our Bluegrass band. Good tune.
    He was not really on my radar until several years ago. A local music venue does an annual multi-day...

    Yes, good choice. I got my 1917 A4 in the late Ď70s when I lived in New York. I bought it from some guy for around $300. The top is distressed & it did not come with a pick guard or a case, I...

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    My favorite Mandolins are the old Gibson Ovals, the sound, playability, & looks. I am somewhere in between my friend, David, & the F5 lovers. The first decade or so I played Gibson As. I found them...

    Re: Turns and Mordents

    Yes, like Doug says, time period is important. I’m all for being idiomatically correct. Usually for Baroque/Bach it is recommended to start a trill from the note above the melody & avoid tremolo...

    He played his F5 style electric, with a little humbucker. There is a photo on the back. I saw him play it live a few times. I did get to play it unplugged once. That was cool. There are others who...

    Re: Jethro Live

    Yes, indeed. I have the vinyl, too. In fact, I have it in a frame on my Mandolin wall. Love his crazed-zany look on the cover. I dubbed it digitally some years back, so it’s in my ITunes & Ipod to...

    Great idea. Jethro was my first Mandolin teacher. It was such a positive experience, I believe that’s why I’m still playing now, some 40+ years later. Jethro embraced Music, whether it was Pop, Jazz,...
