Not too long ago I was helping a friend get ready to move and she gave me this mandolin that was buried in her closet. Now, I can’t play the mandolin (or anything really) but that doesn’t stop me. I recorded about 15 minutes of exploration, kind of approaching it the way John Cage might approach a piano (?). Then I cut out a bunch of samples from that. I put some of them together for a preview. I’m uploading all of them in a zip. Maybe somebody might get some use out of them.

Also - if there are any mando experts out there maybe you could help identify it. Here’s a picture. There are no labels on it (or in it) but the case has a serial number and 1940 hand written on it. From a google image search I don’t think it’s anything of great value but still, it is 75 years old and in pretty decent shape.
