    Re: Would you sacrifice tone for playability?

    Let's say I have $500 - $1.5k to spend on a mandolin. I would not buy one that sounds crummy. I would not buy one that has structural problems or design defects that render it impossible to play...
  8. Re: Can anyone tell me anything about this banjolin?

    As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure the banjo mandolin in that thread is the same instrument as the one in this thread. Check the stains on the head. Good catch, Flutes.

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    Used to. But none of that la-dee-dah three finger stuff. Swore it off, though, and got a mandolin. Haven't looked back.

    Re: Mandolin "B" stock or seconds etc.

    I suspect that it will sound just like a non-second The Loar. I wish you luck but I don't think you'll need it. Unpack it, do the Rob Meldrum setup on it and you'll be liking it just...

    I agree with Philphool. And I think it is as much a mind thing as it is a physical agility thing. In the meantime, come visit the Newbies Social Group, where we, if nothing else, help each other...

  16. Re: Do you ever sing the notes of a tune while you play it?

    Who was it, Pablo Cassals? Often got carried away during a recording or performance and sang his cello part loudly enough to be heard over the cello itself.

    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Sherry, we both started on the mandolin at about the same time. I memorize the tunes for our Newbies Tune of the Month. I think it takes me an inordinate amount of time after 'learning' the tune to...

    Sherry, at that speed (half note = 66) a series of quarter notes would still be slow enough that you could go either way depending on how you want to emphasize them. DDDDDD would give a strong...

    Even if you don't want to do setup stuff yourself, it is a "must read" for any mandolin owner.
