Below is a video where I play Bourree II by J.S. Bach. I am playing my Korean built, oval hole, mystery mandolin. No serial number, but sounds and plays great. Especially in Jazz or Classical context. Tabs and notation for this provided by Mel Bay’s, “J.S. Bach for Mandolin.”
Below is a video of me playing a piece by one of my all time favorite composers. Bach’s music is so well rounded, pushing boundaries without ever tipping out of bounds. I recently discovered playing his music on mandolin is incredibly fun, and good practice too.
I have recently been exploring classical music arranged on the mandolin. Here is me playing Bach’s Bouree on one mandolin.
After listening to some old recordings of mine I decided to upload my interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Bouree I. It is not without mistakes, but then what would I have to work for. This recording is me playing one track of mandolin. Even with sparse instrumentation, Bach’s music is full, colorful, complex and interesting.
