Hello all, I haven't been around of late, but I have been pursuing some new musical channels. I spend a lot of my time learning and playing Cape Breton tunes, mostly on my Eastman 505 mandolin but I've been having this itch...and last week I scratched it and got myself a 4-string Fender Mando-Strat. You can judge for yourself...I think its a pretty cool sound and its fun to play, warning, Wah-Wah is part of my definition of fun.

Bill Cameron's YouTube Channel

I find the amped-up electric sound goes well with Cape Breton music's energy...

There's some other stuff there too, most of which features more approved acoustic instruments...enjoy!

I fancied one of these little beasts, but chose to commission one from a luthier friend of mine. I asked for a 5-string version, making it a hybrid "mandotenor"!

You can see and hear it in action at:

Will Fly - "As Time Goes By"

Not exactly traditional, but shows off some aspects of the instrument...

I will look, will, when I get to a faster connection, I do have the will.

Apologies for the post and run, folks, was just on the road for 12 hours--in other words, an easy Friday.

I do look in at le Cat somewhat more often than I post, these days.

Hello to all my old friends...

Just listened...very nicely playedWill. A good demo of how you can get vibrato that is much harder to attain with a 2-string course.

Indeed - that why the tremolo plays such an important part in conventional mandolin playing. I can occasionally get a vibrato in my mandolin playing, but it's hardly suitable for the instrument!
