  1. Re: Finding a teacher when you have very specific musical interes

    The Classical Mandolin Society of America (CMSA) has a list of teachers that you might take a look at. I expect that many of these would be amenable to Zoom lessons. They also have a list of...
  2. Re: Winding string loop ends for 1890 Vinaccia

    To put a finish to this:

    Re: Aria del 700 Amadeo Amadei

    His name may be spelled Amedeo Amadie ... at least that is how it appears on a recording at the library of Congress.
  4. Re: Winding string loop ends for 1890 Vinaccia

    I could go the bowline knot route, but the double courses of G and D, with only a single peg for each pair would...
  5. Winding string loop ends for 1890 Vinaccia

    I can knit an Aran sweater with the wickedest knots the Irish can devise (and they do work at it!), but I'm having problems creating a loop end on a mandolin string. I may be missing something...

    Re: Ranieri - Art of the Mandolin

    As I understand it, the original books 1 & 2 were first published in 1925. Those 1925 editions are out of copyright and maybe reproduced at will. Though the editions published in 1956 and 1959 seem...

  10. Re: Source for Jules Cottin melodic studies?

    If you search the Library of Congress online catalog, you'll get 35 hits. I cataloged most of these items at LC over the last few years in my attempt as a volunteer to get more of LC's mandolin...

    I've become a big fan of MuseScore over the last few months. It is easy to learn (you have to take a quick tutorial as the functions are not particularly intuitive). Google searches work wonderfully...

  14. Re: Modern case options for teens Gibson A models

    I bought a HISCOX LITEFLITE "PRO II" from Elderly for my 1917 A4. Fits very well with lots of room for auxiliary stuff. I haven't traveled with it yet but it seems study.

  16. Re: Need suggestions on piano mandolin duet to work on with daugh

    One place to start and at least get a sense of the variety to be found in the mandolin/piano rep, chiefly from the 1890-1920 era, is the Library of Congress. If you go to https://catalog.loc.gov/...
