The Mandolin

I know lots of Tenor Banjo players play Mandolin too, usually in secret at home, using the same fingering, same notes, same tunes, so I thought we should have a group here, for us to share our thoughts.

Mandolin Links!

Here's a bunch of Mandolin Videos

I've started posting Video Clips on my Mandolin, of tunes for a learners group on the Mandolin Cafe Forum, so I thought I might as well post them here too, just in case anyone here might be interested in learning the tunes, or simply discussing them.
Feel free to post your own video or MP3 version of any of those tunes on their discussion thread.

I've written a report on the mandolin class given by Marla Fibish at the 2013 O'Flaherty Irish Music Retreat on mandolincafe.  If you are interested in learning more about her and her music, I have included a few more videos and some idea about how and what she teaches.

I had to change the name of the Strathspey, so I've reposted this video:

A video, using a set of my own Scottish Tunes, played on Mandolin, with a little Tenor Banjo on the Reel, plus Tenor Guitar, Fiddle & Nyckelharpa.

The Oban Set

Cheers,

Just for you Grey Picker, here's a 2nd version, this time without the Fiddle & with more Mandolin & Concertina in the mix.

Cheers,

Dick

What a good, lively tune, Dick! Very well played, too! That has really started my day in a jaunty humour! More power!

Here's a wee 4 part March, with a Scottish flavour, that I wrote for a Fiddle player from Oban who was over here on holiday last week. I play Mandolin on this, plus Fiddle, Nyckelharpa & English Concertina.
