    Re: Mandocellos at CMSA

    I look forward to meeting you and your Hathaway. When travel opens up again my wife and I have friends in Romsey, near Southampton; we plan a trip to the UK Isles--whether or not they're still "UK."...

    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    Yeah--that would work! But you do need a strong voice--like his. Great song & sound.

    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    Also a baritone, although I was a vocal major and can extend my range a bit. I suggest realistically not trying to use the MC on every song--I mostly use mandolin (with a guitar-fiddle-bass group)...

    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    I have a lot of material and topics ready for my CMSA Mandocello Hangout session, but one theme will be mandolin "things" that do not transfer to the mandocello. This chording thing is clearly one...

    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    I like charts that put chords (or any musical concept) in context; I have a chord book that has 2 pages of "C chords" (maj, min, dim....) then two pages of "C# chords" and so on. There is something...

    Thank you for this work, Bernie: I am a singer and mandocello player so this is quite useful. I am also hosting a mandocello session at the Classical Mandolin Society convention in a few weeks...
  10. Re: Summer Suite, August, 2020 for Octave Mandolin or Mandocello

    John, you keep making more work for me!
    I will get these up and picking soon--Fabio has me working on selections from your Winter Suite. BIG (OK, semi-big... and virtual) plans for the CMSA...
  11. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    These are wonderful pieces and additions to the repertoire--I will be sure to include your posts in my CMSA mandocello session. Always interesting to hear music from fine but lesser-known composers...
  12. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    It's late here in Oregon, so I will listen tomorrow--but thank you once again for your contributions. I will be hosting a mandocello hangout at CMSA, I will certainly tell people about your work.

    Incredible scholarship and technical information. Even though it is beyond my range of "doing anything" with this, I am impressed. Too many people take what is in front of them and assume "it's...

    When I proposed a mandocello workshop at the CMSA convention a few years ago, people told me there was no music for mandocello, only transcriptions. Mandocello was largely thought of as providing an...

    Re: Gervasio sonatas

    Intrigued by the basso continuo part; probably not period-authentic (?) but might fit my mandocello. Is sheet music published?

    Re: J. S. Bach The Cello Suites for Mandolin

    I understand SLT's question, and I think a possible answer is simply that many people have mandolins, fewer people have mandocellos. That is improving, though--we had 25 in the orchestra at the last...
