    Exclamation The House of the Rising Sun

    An American folk song composed by anonymous author in the first half of the nineteenth century and of which many versions were done in recent times, in a my arrangement for classical guitar.

    The Italians have a talent to interpret American Western moods their own seductive way. Next, you must thrust into the heart of it and do some of Morricone's!

    Well this is so interesting - would I really try it on mandolin? <wink>
    Could be very interesting.
    I can hear the tremolo conveying the ruin and the aftermath brought about by the "House of the Rising Sun".
    Perhaps very effectively conveyed by mandolin??

    You are exactly right. That's what I was thinking when he got about half way through: Where's the pathos? The desperation? Tremelo would certainly capture it. I was hoping that's what he would do, or break into some gypsy guitar riffs. Anyway, I hope when you do it, you'll post it.

    Not being a guitar player myself, I still have often let classical guitar performance encourage me for trying things on the OM I would not have considered possible without.
    Mandolin players can show us perfection of what we already know. Other players can teach us to boldly play what no mandolin has played before.

    Dear friends mandolinists,
    first of all I apologize because I speak English very bad ... unfortunately I must confess that sometimes I do not understand exactly what you write to me, I'm sorry for that ...
    I also play the mandolin, but my main instrument is the classical guitar. The guitar has a great advantage over the mandolin is self-sufficient, can play alone! The mandolin has almost always need a musical instrument that supports it (guitar, etc ...) I understand well that this is a forum dedicated to the mandolin but I also think that good music has no boundaries. However, if you think I'm completely out of place, I will not post more guitar video ...
    And anyway, to satisfy you, here's a video of some years ago with a dear friend and great mandolinist of Catania. Hope you like it.
    (I also am of Catania as the great Maestro Giovanni Gioviale!)
    p.s. Thank you very much Bertram!

    Thanks for giving me "il cattivo" - I always thought Lee van Cleef's face was just too authentic to be real, the purest cast character of that film.

    Well, Had a mandolin practice. Played melody of "the House of the Rising Sun." Even scratched a tremolo or two - some tremolo with pick other with the nails - could almost feel the pathos of that tremolo - that is - rudimentary as it was.
    Though I do not think it deserves being a video yet! <smile>

    Mr. Torrisi, I do not play guitar. Alas, do I speak Italian either. I appreciate your well done attempts to communicate in English. I appreciate your wonderful guitar playing even more. Every time I listen, I begin to smile, and then I want to find some sort of accompaniment on my mandolin. I enjoy your musicanship. I enjoy your posts.

    Duet with a video is fine, I have no issues with a guitarist posting something I can play along with.

    The classic. I always wondered how and why they generated that screeching background noise.
