Taking a break from my grandmother’s things today, here’s me doing a cover of German medieval rock band Schelmish’s song, ‘Aequinoctium’.  Feel free to leave your comments here, or on the youtube page, which is here.

Music to keep you warm this winter

I don’t know why, but I recently started looking for more music again, this time mostly of the medieval and rennasiance variety (mainy because that’s what I prefer to play on the mandolin, and it’s good for inspiration).

So now I shall share with you the fruits of my efforts, in no particular order:

There’s alot more.  If you enjoy any of these groups, check out their friends list on their myspace pages to find more.  I would be remiss if I did not mention the three groups that really turned me on to this style of music in the first place:

  • Corvus Corax (found them via the Gothic III credits, oddly enough) (Website) (Myspace)
  • Patrask (I love their rendition of Meie Din, Leihter Schin) (Website) (Myspace)

And last, but certainly not least, the one and only international minstrel troupe know as…


Bär Tanz

I’ve been meddling with a few different variations of the Bear Dance (a medieval german sone) on my mandolin, and decided to tab out the variation that I kept returning to.  So for those interested, here’s a PDF copy of the tab/sheet music: Bär Tanz

I’ll probably do a video or recording of myself playing it at some point in time, so now you have something to ook forward to in the future. Isn’t it nice to finally have a reason to live?

A little more mandolin love…

I hate to say it, but it’s becoming more fun to play around with than the banjo…
