  4. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I'm not a big fan of the show, nor even of CT or mndln (although I do play a bit). But I agree with Brad here - the musical artistry and production is impeccable.

    I've listened on a number of...
  5. Re: Asturias - Solo Mandolin (Performed by Tiziano Palladino)

    I'm sure there are a number of classical guitarists aboard here who have an appreciation of the degree of difficulty of performing Leyenda on mndln. Impressive.

  8. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    I have to say, when I was playing I quite felt - when I showed up to parties, band practices, dances...that's when the music started. That's when things started swinging. So my little saying is -...
  9. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    I think I ruined myself more on DB as anything -teaching myself Ron Carter style on an old Kay basically using Segovia scales studies books. I had to lay off for 5 years to let my hand heal. I gave...

    Re: Alternate Mandolin Tunings

    Yes those are great harmonic tunings on guitar for that blues/folk/fingerstyle. I guess they called Fahey and kottke and the British players - many emulating american blues guys - "primitive...
