    Default Spring Suite, May 2019 for OM or Mandocello

    I just posted a new solo piece for big mandolins at my So Many Tunes blog titled Spring Suite, May 2019. This is a follow-up to the Winter Suite that I posted back in February.

    It's another simple collection of short pieces and I present them in versions for both Mandocello and Octave Mandolin. I also did a rudimentary recording on an Eastman OM which you can hear at either the blog site or in a more easy to stream (and higher quality) version at my Bandcamp site.

    I'll be attending the CMSA Mandocello session next week in Bloomington-Normal and hope to see some of you there. I hope you enjoy the music!

    Many thanks, John, for another great addition to the solo MC/OM repertoire, and lovely playing on the OM. As with the Winter Suite, I have now made my own recording on solo mandocello, a fifth below the OM version. This is fun to play on the mandocello, and nicely varied. I particularly enjoyed the final jig section.

    See you in a few days John, and I hope you'll play some of your suite for our Solo Mandocelllo session. I'm too busy trying to play the orchestra music!
    Sounds good in that bass range too, Martin.
