    And he lives outside a major NE American city. And he has an extensive collection of mandolins, guitars, vioins, banjos, etc.
    And he has fingers that mysteriously stretch to the envy of contortionists......

    Mick, are you assuming something here? No, not me. I have seen ads for this collection and I was not interested in it at that price for even a small fraction. My thoughts were if Grisman or similar folks were not interested there may not be much there that we would get too excited about. Perhaps I am wrong and for my friend's sake, I hope so.

    Check. Was just teasing, Jim, based on your mysterious post and membership in a prominent mandolin orchestra (I think.)

    Heck, I'd love to have a look at Rudy's archives but have tended to agree with Sheri's thoughts that these need to go to a public institution that can properly sort through these and make them available to the public.

    None of my business, really, but selling these for 700 bucks? Come on. I'm glad your friend bought these and hopefully has both an altruistic motive and that there are many a worthwhile nugget to discover.

    I figured there was no real reason to mention his name since he is not a member. I am curious what this pile is like but will see if i can meet with him when he receives it. I will let you know. He is altruistic and I would think he would made copies available to the mandolin-playing public.

    I'm busy at work transcribing the remaining titles in the Rudy Cipolla archive from the unreadable manuscripts to readable scores vetted through my software system to eliminate the annoying prevalent mistakes and errors that exist on the originals. I should have quite a few more titles available in PDF format by late spring.

    Today, I'm on a fishing expedition. THE CMSA will meet in San Diego this year, toward November, and I'd like to have a group of mandolinists and guitarists signed up to play Cipolla's music. I anticipate that we would rehearse for a couple of days at the convention and present his music on a Saturday. You would receive the PDFs of the sheet music and audio files to help you prepare so that we can arrive at the convention ready to
    rehearse.

    Does that appeal to anyone? Please PM with the instrument you play and level of interest so I can decide how to proceed. I would need mandolins! but also octave mandolin, mandocello, banjo mandolin, guitar, flute (or clarinet on some), drums, bass viol.

    or send email to zighi@sonic.net

    Thank you and Happy New Year, Sheri
