Slowing Down YouTube Videos Without Software

by Scott Tichenor on Jan-05-2016 at 9:50am
A recent video posted by the very fine mandolin player David Benedict reminded us of a YouTube feature many are probably not aware of. Once in awhile you're going to run into an arrangement of a piece of music you'd like to learn but it's played at a speed that's beyond what your ears and brain can handle.


YouTube has a feature built right into the video where you can slow the audio down to half and quarter speeds while the pitch is retained. It couldn't

Entering The Golden Age of Online Music Education

by Scott Tichenor on Dec-23-2015 at 2:00pm
If there's one thing obvious about 2015, it was a year that really marked the true beginning of a golden age of online learning via video lessons for those of us that apply pick or fingers to strings. We, the mandolin public, eager to learn, we're the winners.

ArtistWorks has been at it for awhile now, and really led the way with a new educational outlet for mandolin, guitar, banjo, fiddle and other stringed instruments. The candle on the Peghead Nation one-year birthday cake is barely

by Scott Tichenor on Sep-25-2015 at 1:02pm
Air Canada has announced the following restructuring for musicians flying with an instrument and have updated their web site. We can only hope this is the start of a trend for other airlines to follow, particularly in light of Southwest Airlines recently breaking two double basses in one week. More...

The Wisdom of Google

by Scott Tichenor on Sep-22-2015 at 11:39am
Bear with a minute. Your ability to find information on the internet should be better. Sounds like a huckster's opening line in a spam email, doesn't it?

First, a story that I know everyone can relate to:

A few days ago I went onto a large social media and review site I post on, in the top 150 of ALL internet sites (not Facebook, whose search function is one of the worst on the internet). I was hunting for a resource I'd reviewed months back. In spite of the fact I

Create your own custom mandolin patent art

by Scott Tichenor on Sep-18-2015 at 12:17pm
Recently a web site specializing in U.S. Patent information made into posters came to our attention. Patents Wall Art Decor's music instrument category has some 50+ historic instruments in it including six banjo posters and plenty of guitars and other stringed instruments. Cool, I'm thinking. Any mandolin posters? Sadly, no. Waaaaaaa.

So what the heck. You could make your own, or pay between $24.99 and $169.99 for one of theirs. They customize theirs with speciality fonts as headers.
