On the Sol, in Mi was arranged from a short guitar solo that is part of Harlequin in Love–a pun on the fact that most of the melody is played on the third string (sol) in the key of E Major (mi). Mark Davis told me that this piece was very special to him, one of the most important pieces he had ever played. That was enough to get me to arrange it for his new trio of 2 mandolins and guitar.

The title is a pun on the original work in the key of E, melody played all on the G-string.
