Remember Me? Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 25 of Thread: Jack Tottle-"Bluegrass Mandolin". Thread Tools Show Printable Version. Jack Tottle-"Bluegrass Mandolin" Help needed. I recently purchased on ebay the Jack Tottle-"Bluegrass Mandolin" book. To my surprise when I got it, the original soft two sided record was included and still attached to the book which appears to be an original edition soft covered book.
Does anyone have this record or the later CD converted over to computer file format such as wav, mp3, etc? The other advantage of the digital format of course is that I can change pitch and speed. Since I own a copy I don't think it would be considered a violation of any copyright issues but I'd sure appreciate keeping that "antique" book intact. Thanks to anyone who can help. There was a site posted here on Mando Cafe with the link. If not drop me a PM and I'll send you a disc of it.
Still have the little soft record too. It's a wonder the needle hasn't cut it into. Great book! I always liked that version of "Billy in the Low Ground". I Pick, Therefore I Grin! Ah, memories Re: Jack Tottle-"Bluegrass Mandolin" Definitely keep your copy together, may be worth some money some day.
Mine is in about fifty pieces now, I really need to get a new copy. My book never came with a recording, although I eventually found the mp3 floating around. Had the book two years before I realized Jack was teaching a couple of hours from where I was living in Tennessee, and was lucky enough to eventually befriend and study with him at ETSU. I have a version of Jack's Grandfather's Clock on my myspace if anyone needs audio it's not on the book audio, probably because he released it on his Back Road Mandolin album around the same time.
Jack is in semi-retirement, but I'm pretty sure you can still get lessons with him one semester a year at ETSU.
Calace Brevettato Espresso Youtube. It is a great mando album and one of my favorites. I've had it since new with the tab. I have tried to learn the intro to Fisher's Hornpipe and can't seem to get it.
It's a great companion piece to the Bluegrass mandolin book. Has a nice Loar hanging in the bushes on the cover. And yes to Back Road Mandolin. Bought the record when it was released. Nice selection of tunes, loads of crosspicking and has the great Van Manakas and Kenny Kosek. Make sure to get the pitch corrected files. Those BBC Session files are pretty cool too. I have visited that site for years, but it's nice to have them on the hard drive. I recently got a second hand copy of the book but without audio.
The audio files will help greatly. GerryHastie "There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. I am a newbie and I have the Bluegrass mandolin book I can't wait to listen to these files!! I didn't record those, just found 'em on the net and gave them a place to live. A guy by the name of Buddy Ellis did the pitch correction to the files after I put them on my site.
Enjoy, Pete. Great teacher! That one looks like a bear Re: Jack Tottle-"Bluegrass Mandolin" I was just given an "almost new" copy of Jack Tottle's book with the soft vinyl record still attached inside!
Not planning to part with this one, or remove the record, but was wondering what this might be worth. Any ideas out there? I don't have the turntable anymore to play the wee record. I have had this book for years, blundering along without the record.
Now you have given me something to go on with. Very generous of you. I bought this book maybe 2 years ago but it never came with sound files. This is very helpful! It's an easy to find soft cover with virtually no significance outside of the world of mandolin players, most of whom would probably value the contents of the book far more than the book as a collectable object?
In my experience, books acquire collectable value due to impact and fame of author, age meaning older than the s , unique or desirable design, and the fame and importance of the book itself. A soft cover bluegrass mando instructional book just doesn't seem like something that's going to acquire a high price and a slew of buyer's eager to shell out big money because it's a 1st edition.
I lost my disk a while back. These are very helpful. This is a very good book. Maybe Jack should re-issue it with a CD? I had the book years ago now I'll have to buy another copy! I had long known about this book.
Yesterday I saw and bought it in a local store. And today I see the information about the files right here Thanks, Pete, for making them available. I just listened to Fisher's Hornpipe and it is for me insanely fast. I have never let my schooling interfere with my education - Mark Twain. Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page:. All times are GMT The time now is pm.
These are the sound recordings that originally came on the floppy record yes, record! Through dumb luck, I found these files on the web, posted them, and have since been getting higher quality and pitch corrected versions sent to me. I even got a nice note from Jack thanking me for making these available. Anyway, below are the many different formats available for you to download. I've included the size of the files and the name of the person who did the audio transfer. From Jack Tottle: I got an email from Jack one day. I expected that I was going to get yelled out for having the files available.
