    I would just really like to play some Italian music. I am looking for some sheet music for some Italian songs. When I was a kid going to weddings everyone did the tarantella. I don't know what version but everyone loved it.

    Nick, the thread that Jim Garber gave you mentions a book Mandolin Melodies by Sheri F. Mignano Crawford, Zighi Baci Publishing, http://www.zighibaci.com/. It's a great resource. I wrote flute and clarinet parts for my band for Tarantella Napoletana, also called the Wedding Tarantella. The tune is in this book. We play it on accordion and woodwinds, but you can probably adapt it readily for mandolins.

    I also love Speranze Perdute on Jim Garber's site. It is in Ms. Mignano's book, too, with 2 mandolin parts.

    Lastly, there is a band in Australia called Zumpa. They have a book of Italian tunes for purchase and you can get a free sample here: http://archive.wongawillicolonialdan...patunebook.php.

    That would be great Sherri

    Some of the more popular songs or must have songs would be great. I recognize most of the songs but I dont know them by name.

    Merry Christmas to all
