  1. Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    +1 on all of Hank's comments above.

    Re: How to remember tunes?

    For me, learning a tune by ear or visually seems to embed it in my brain much better than learning by tab.

    When I started, I lived on MandoLessons, and learned a bunch of fiddle tunes. Baron...

    Re: right wrist, rotate or up and down?

    Interested in opinions as well.

    I've heard it described as either "tapping with a small hammer" or "turning the ignition key"

    Coming from guitar, I tend more toward the ignition key, but I've...

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    As a guitar/bass player for around 50 years, IMO you should start with standard tunings and get some basic skills there. You have a vastly larger set of music that is intended to be played in...

    Re: The Myth of Perfection

    "Perfect" <> "Flawless"

    And context matters, too. An old broke-in pair of Levis is perfect for a Sunday afternoon at home, but not for a black-tie wedding reception. Similarly, not likely anyone...

  18. Re: NMD - impulse purchase, and an F style to boot

    Congrats - it's a beaut! Looks very similar to the 2000 Bitterroot F that I had. The mahogany has a real nice quality to it. Very warm tone.

    FYI, I added a Tone-Gard to mine and it improved the...

    I also have one of each. I love the aesthetics of both. One has the flourish, one the simplicity. Both are high-quality mandos, with different sounds, but that is the result of the way they are...

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    Agree with the suggestion to hop over to Gryphon and play a bunch. Only you know what tone you're after.

    Also agree that an instrument from Will Kimble should be included in the running.
