  4. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Thanks, Jill. Good to hear that you're making progress. Onwards and upwards hopefully. No rush on "our earlier conversation" ... just thought I'd mention it, given that we are in contact again. ...
  5. Re: help not-quite-intermediate player put together a tune set

    Hi. There is absolutely no reason why a tune set should comprise any more than two tunes if you’re happy that two tunes “say” all you want to say.

    In fact, and this is merely a personal opinion,...
  6. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Right - so I've found that "electric" version of A Tune For Fee and I've posted it to the site. And I've included sheet music for all other tunes in the original tunes section of the site. Thanks...
  7. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    PS - John. Thanks for the comment about sheet music. I'll add sheet music versions of the other tunes in the "original tunes" section of the site. I don't read dots myself, so often overlook the...
  8. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    John ... thank you very much for your comment. I think I'm with you that it doesn't really matter so much what the "tune type" is. Interestingly, I sometimes play this at a much MUCH slower pace...

    Thanks Mikey. Encouraging words and much appreciated. Aidan
  10. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Hi all

    A quick favour if I may.

    I've recently added "A Tune For Fee" to the original tunes part of my site https://theirishmandolin.com/original-tunes-written-and-played-by-aidan-crossey/. ...
  11. Re: Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Two splendid tunes arrived with me over the weekend, from Roy Johnstone. Flatworld - a waltz composed by the excellent melodeonist Andy Cutting - and Millie's Waltz, composed by Roy himself. Well...

  14. Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Hi all...

    I hope everyone is staying safe and sane in these disrupting and troubling times.

    I thought I'd take the opportunity to give an update on The Irish Mandolin, the website I started to...
  15. Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~£500($700)?

    Wow Ray ... didn’t know that. Shame. They stocked some very tasty instruments - mainly guitars - and were such a mainstay of the London music scene. Shows how often I get up west these days! ...
  16. Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~£500($700)?

    Just across the road from Hobgoblin is Ivor Mairants. According to their website, they have an Eastman MD314 for sale for under £600. See...

    Very sad news indeed. Such an exceptional musician. That instantly recognisable, very individual style.

    Re: Back in action

    Good to hear from you Kevin. It’s been a while. Not sure if anyone took any photos of the Lewisham gig - it was such a low key affair (but all the better for that!). I’m not sure that in those days...

    Re: Back in action

    So, people, here we are several weeks later. And I’ve been busy recording and tabbing tunes and ting (as they say in South East London). So, just wondering, how’s this new venture landing? Any more...
