Go Bernardo!

I and several of my friends profess to be mandolin players. Here’s a real one.  This link was sent by my friend Alan. It’s from 1927 – an Italian mandolin virtuoso called Bernardo de Pace. As Alan put it ‘Part Liberace, part Freddy Mercury, part Tiny Tim, part Eddie van Halen – 80 years ago.’

Don’t be fooled by the rather classical first four minutes. The fun really starts at about 4:30 when it goes to closeup.
