A Bowl of Bula with Mark O’Connor on the Mandolin

Here is Mark O’Connor doing one of his best pieces on the mandpolin.



One of Mark O’Connor’s mandolin signature pieces! “A Bowl of Bula” Mark O’Connor’s mandolin playing in this video from 1991 features the deft dexterity of both hands and powerfully loud strumming. O’Connor wrote this mandolin piece in 1984 while in Figi. To hear a group version of this song, link here to a 1987 video. www.youtube.com O’Connor became the World Mandolin Champion in Kerrville, TX as a teenager in 1982. Mark plays violin exclusively as of 1997, giving way to a bursitis and tendonitis condition in his right arm that would not allow him to play the mandolin or guitar any further at his top form. But the condition allows Mark’s violin bow arm technique to operate free from injury, with no hindrance. www.markoconnor.com http twitter.com www.facebook.com

Amazing young indian mandolin player (U. Shrinivas)



Years ago I recorded this young mandolin player on VHS. From the comments I received, it seems to be of a young U. Shrinivas. This helped me to find out that he’s older now, and he still is a mandolin maestro. Go check his site: www.mandolinshrinivas.org

This is a good guitar for a beginner?

I've never played a guitar before, but this year I'm going to guitar lessons. I just bought a guitar. But not the only one you will use in school, just use for practice at home, because if not just practice once every 1.5 weeks, so I decided to buy a cheap one just for practice. Is it a good guitar? Like I do not care if it is not the best sound, if I like it I'll buy a better one when I play a little better, this is just for a year or so. This is the same, the same color, same seller, I bought one an hour ago.> = Http: / / cgi.ebay.ca/NEW-NATURAL-ACOUSTIC-GUITAR-GIG-BAG-CASE-STRAP-TUNER_W0QQitemZ280393545564QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?

This will be a piece of shit. Is likely to be reproduced. You should have gone to the music store and got a Fender beginners and $ 100 and would have been much better.

how to replace a broken string mandolin?

I bought my first mandolin, a few months ago and have been using the strings that come with it. Now I broke the chains of E. When I buy new strings I need to replace only the sequence of failures, and much or all chains of command? I do not know how important is to have all the same chords. Also, any tips for choosing strings? I have a relatively low cost ($ 900) f-style mandolin, and I play an eclectic mix of music, from blues to bluegrass to jazz. As a violinist a few decades I've found the perfect chain for every situation (even a different mix chain often produces good results), but for the mandoline I'm not really sure where to start. You probably do not need anything very elegant, mandolin is just a hobby for some fun on the side. It seems they are cheap too, $ 5.10 for a set.

All strings are tuned the same. If you broke and then replace a single string. Finally, the other and will break and limited to substitute or replace them both. I think they come in pairs. you decide. Even if you blend strings, as I said, each string is tuned to its double.
