    Re: Uncharted territory in my mandolin life

    I like the concept of playing the same mandolin. I’m hoping I can avoid wandering eyes. :)

    Re: Uncharted territory in my mandolin life

    Downtime? What downtime? :)

    I’m fortunate enough to be able to work from home during this virus event. That means I still have a full-time job and really don’t have much extra time than pre-virus....

  5. Re: Simplifying when notating mandolin music?

    If you were writing out a solo by a good pro for your use, would you try to get all those little extra notes? Or would that be unreasonable? I can read music well enough (I was a music major before...

    Re: buying first mando without playing?

    I’ve played all your examples, other than the “The Loar.” I still own an Eastman MD315 and Silverangel A. I wouldn’t stress too much over not being able to play these instruments before buying. All...
  7. Simplifying when notating mandolin music?

    I generally like to notate fiddle tunes in Finale, and donít include tab, but write just the bare melody lines with the expectation that Iíll be filling in, modifying, adding double stops, etc., when...

    Re: Uncharted territory in my mandolin life

    I can see that. It’s interesting to see what’s out there, what prices are doing, even if I’m giving up on “dating.”

    Re: Uncharted territory in my mandolin life

    That was part of my motivation to buy now. We had some money freed up, but I knew that I could likely have some extra time for music, too. When I saw Elderly stop selling, I thought I’d better jump...

    Iím happy with the progress Iíve made on mandolin in the past year (after a long hiatus from music), but much of my mandolin life has been spent looking and listening and learning, figuring what...

    Re: Waiting for UPS

    I’ve used the app but it didn’t give me a narrow window. Our UPS deliveries tend to be late evening but occasionally mid-morning or early afternoon. I just keep wondering all day lol.

    Re: A Mandolin Strap question

    I’ve temporarily used a boot lace in the past. I tried it again last week and the relatively narrow leather lace bothered my shoulder, even with the light weight of a mandolin. I guess that’s the...

    Here are some of the scratches. Easy to see with the eye but harder to capture in a picture.

    Re: Waiting for UPS

    I was actually shocked by the number and extent of the scratches on the top. TME showed a few, but they didn’t convey the extent! If I were thinking of future trades, the scratches would have...

    Re: A Mandolin Strap question

    I have a nice Lakota strap on one mandolin, but the strap is just a bit too short. I used a leather boot lace and tied one end through the last hole of the mandolin strap and the other end around the...

    Re: Informal Poll

    A couple of years ago a $5k would have seemed crazy expensive to me. I have three nice guitars and the most expensive Martin, a D18GE, had cost me about $2300 new. The HD28 was about $1800 new.

    Re: Fret Size Opinions

    I have a mandolin with thin frets and a mandolin with large frets. The difference in playing is pretty subtle to me. I’d say that the larger frets are a bit smoother to play. Maybe.
