    Re: Scale Patterns

    Jon - I second the suggestion for the mandozine site. If you look in essential tunes\ tabledit files\exercises, there is a file named ScalePatternsForImprovG that is exactly what you are looking for.

  3. Re: Creating New Fiddle Tunes (Mandolin Tunes, Technically Speaki

    I'm definitely going to keep learning new ones as well as work on making the current ones sound better.

  4. Re: Creating New Fiddle Tunes (Mandolin Tunes, Technically Speaki

    Mark,

    That's definitely the plan. I just need to find the time to make a decent recording first.

    I am already anticipating the response, "oh that's the Plagiarist's Reel", or " Louie Louie's...
  8. Creating New Fiddle Tunes (Mandolin Tunes, Technically Speaking)

    I figured this is the best place to post about this topic.

    I find myself, of late, coming up with all sorts of new (to me anyway) tunes on my Jacobson #34. A lot of this activity begins to take...

    Padauk base with ebony saddle. I paraphrase, but Marty offered it as an option "because we can." As many of you have already seen, Marty has an amazing eye for the aesthetic. When he suggested...

    Jacobson #34

    I asked Marty to build me a mandolin that I would use primarily for playing Celtic music. I couldn't be happier with the final product.

    I think I see where you went wrong. It was probably inevitable that you would end up an artist when you attended Collage instead of College. :grin:

    Thanks for all of this information. Assuming I start recording more in the near future, I can see myself dropping some dough on a few good microphones.

    MP3 Rocket is a free tool that lets you copy the audio from youtube vids as mp3 files. I just use transcribe at that point.

    Almeria - Do you have any experience with mics modded by Michael Joly? The first clip on the link below sounds pretty amazing to me and purports to be a KM84 with an Oktava Modded MK-012.
