    Re: Young Sam Bush A5 video

    There’s an interview with mike Marshall where Sam talks a bit about those mandos, I think. If I can spend five uninterrupted minutes here, I’ll see if I can post it.

    Re: Old mandolins versus new a conclusion

    I suspect that most instruments today are made better than most instruments of the past. The exceptions are famous. But how many 1934 gibsons, say, weren’t as good as a nice Weber or a good Gibson...

    Re: Negative harmony.

    I think the simplest thing is to use the parallel minor.



    If you take the Cm chord scale

    Cm dhalfdim7 Ebmajor Fmin Gb min Ab min bmaj

    Negative harmony.

    I’m currently working my way through several high level theory books. We already discussed slominsky.

  15. Re: Slonimksy's Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns

    This is, I think, great advice. In perusing the contents the pentatonic and heptatonic scales catch my eyes.

  17. Slonimksy's Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns

    Just picked this up. It is of course the book that Coltrane, Mingus, Zappa, and Jaco, among many many others studied.

    In a reverse of what I usually say - 'It's not a big mandolin'. Its responses are different, its capabilities are different, its tone is different. You can actually use a lot of mando technique on...

    He knew Country Music was three chords and the truth. What you saw, he was, on stage, off-stage, wherever.

    I took a student to buy a guitar, and with her price range, 300-500 AUD very quickly settled on an Eastman. I can’t speak to Loar instruments at all, but I was highly impressed with the Eastman. If I...
