St. Anne’s Reel – Mandocello Duet on 1916 Gibson K4 and on 1924 Gibson K4 with Virzi

St. Anne’s Reel - a duet played on two Gibson K4 mandocellos.
The left one is a 1916 K4 in orange with Händel tuners, the right one is a 1924 K4 in sunburst red with brown tuners and virzi.
Both instruments have their own character in sound and playing. Each one with its own charm and fascination.

Here you find notation and tablature of the melody part as played by the 1924 Gibson K4 mandocello in the video.
