    Re: Tuner...not Tuners

    I use both of these brands:

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

    Yep! :mandosmiley: I agree completely. :grin: Anything tuned in fifths, and (for me) preferably an octave lower than mandolin, for a more mellow sound. GDAE, or GDAEB, or even CGDAEB.

    Re: Help Finding Song

    Any chance it might have been "Father's Hall"? :confused: I found a couple of MandolinCafe posts about that tune, with recordings posted by Chuck Naill in 2010, here and here.

    Yeah, but only with old friends I've known forever, *and* where we know each other well enough to know how we are likely to treat the instruments.

    For me, one of the hardest beasts I've ever tried to tame was the Uilleann pipes, as far as trying to achieve (and maintain!) :crying: a good setup so the darned things play right. Seven reeds...

    Re: Bass guitar stays quiet !!!

    :) Depends on how far back in banjo history one goes. The old gut-string predecessors of modern banjos aren't likely to be anywhere near as loud as modern steel-string banjos of the last 120+ years...
