  6. Re: Best site for mando tabs? Specifically Dan Tyminski?

    There's a pretty good inventory of tabs on this site, under Listen/Learn at the top of the page. Don't see that song there.

    Three finger chords are your friend. Take your time, you won’t be born full grown.

    Re: Woke with a chord question

    I find that what matters to me is finding the correct rootless chord in an unfamiliar key at jam tempo is an enormously challenging task. While I know 3 shapes for rootless m7b5 chords, if they’re...

    Re: 5ths tuned chord progression source?

    Re: Tell me about Ibanez mandolins

    Wait for a bigger step, especially to a better, used instrument. An A style will provide the most bang for your buck.

    I remember they popped up around 2013 as well, and they were very nice right out of the gate. Have only gotten better.
