    Re: John Goodin mandolin duets

    Hello Martin, thanks once more for your lovely recordings and the ever-fascinating slide shows that accompany them. I especially enjoyed the images for the Oswald on the Ohio piece. Although the...
  2. Free Mandolin Orchestra/Ensemble music by John Goodin, updates

    Back in 2008 I created a page at my Mandotopia website that lists the numerous pieces that I have composed for mandolin orchestra and ensembles since the late 1980s. There are 29 pieces listed there...
  3. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Tim, I understand what you are saying about the CMSA convention music. The en masse orchestra music can seem daunting and the level of playing has certainly risen over the years. You are the best...
  4. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Tim, it's great to hear from someone diving into this deep pool of great mandolin music. I just want to put in a plug for the Classical Mandolin Society of America. On the CMSA website, as a...

    Re: Higher Education for Mandolin

    This is great news that the folks at Chapman will allow you to study classical mandolin under the umbrella of the guitar program. Your story could inspire others to try and convince other higher ed...

    Re: Remembering Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni

    Joel, thanks for sharing this news, sad as it is. I was lucky to have met Evelyn at the Austin CMSA (2015) and we had several conversations about composing, arranging and book production. She was...

    Re: Higher Education for Mandolin

    It seems to me that our original OP is asking two basic questions. Where can a person study classical mandolin in higher education and will our instrument ever be recognized as a mainstream...
  8. Re: Spring Suite, May 2019 for OM or Mandocello

    Thanks to all for your kind words. Special thanks to Martin for his fine mandocello recording. Very well played!

    It's another simple...

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Clearly these guys were all having fun but, for me, the more interesting thing is the music played. The tune was pretty generic seeming but the playing of it made it something really interesting.

    Re: CMSA Newbie: Advice Needed!

    Phil, this will be my 21st CMSA convention. My first was in 1990 when our Louisville Mandolin Orchestra was the host. I can say that over the years the friendly atmosphere has been remarkably...

    Evelyn, I'm very sorry to hear that you are ill and need to step back from the joys of playing the mandolin and arranging and composing for it. Your work is greatly valued by many people I know. I...

    Re: Mandolin classical literature

    Carl, it's true that when I said "for all practical purposes" in my earlier message I wasn't thinking of interlibrary loan. But it's also true that OCLC/Worldcat only shows 19 holdings worldwide for...

    I will attach a sample PDF of the front matter and the last page of Joshua Bell's book here. It took me forever to find it. It was tucked away in a folder that also includes my copy of Paul Sparks'...

    Re: John Goodin mandolin duets

    Martin, thanks again for making these tunes sound good. I enjoyed hearing "Ekin Avenue" with mandocellos, a very nice arrangement.

    As always, your choice of images is fun but I especially...
  18. Re: Land of Living Skies by the Regina Mandolin Orchestra

    Unfortunately, no. While northeast Iowa is closer to Regina than most parts of the U.S. it is still pretty far away. The video is almost as good as being there though.
  19. Land of Living Skies by the Regina Mandolin Orchestra

    Here's a video from May 20, 2019 of the Regina Mandolin Orchestra performing a piece that I wrote for them over last winter. I was honored to be asked to write them some music for their 30th...

  21. Re: Grisman "Shalom Aleichem" for Mando Orchestra?

    I was fortunate enough to be an early member of the Louisville Mandolin Orchestra when it began in the late 1980s. In the fall of 1988 we were featured, along with the Modern Mandolin Quartet and Sam...

    What a fine song and video! Thanks for the heads up.
