  2. Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    Johnny Gimble plays an electric mandolin solo at 34:36 on Fiddle Sticks. The tune starts at 33:02.
    Interesting to compare it to his solo on Rose City Chimes.

    Re: How to build a solo?

    Nothing wrong with working up a solo and playing it. Even better is to practice so you have the ability to depart and "spontaneously amend" the notes. Keeping the original solo as something you can...

    Re: How to build a solo?

    The Pentatonic scale = 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th notes of a major scale: in G: G, A, B, D, E.
    In G these notes work well on the G chord. What if you use those 5 notes to play through all chords in...

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    I was using "folk" to describe any contemporary or roots music playable on mandolins/guitars etc.
    Some people in this music improvise off guide tones using approach notes, but its not something

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    Thanks Mark. I find it much easier to look at the neck as a framework of arpeggio notes,
    than to see grids of every scale tone. The blank spaces being the location for "approach notes".

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    Definitely valid, but the basic idea is to use "essential chord tones". The most essential way to define a chord is its major or minor aspect-the 3rd. Then its 7th. Fifths and roots can be used but...

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    A tune is a melody. A chord progression is only the rhythm. You could play a different melody to it. Either written out or improvised.

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    To keep it from getting mechanical I practice chord movement up and down arpeggios a lot. So it becomes second nature. Never think about what the 3’s and 7's actually are though when playing. Just...

    Re: "Playing the circle of fifths"

    I don't agree. Its just a way to get started. One can be inspired by any aspect of music, and build from there.
    A person's ability to communicate is what makes it human and emotional.

    "Music theory" is a fairly scary label. To compare it to another process: I use math all the time to figure
    things out in life. There is "theory" intrinsic in math, if you choose to look at it that...

    Re: Setting pickup height?

    By the way, an American quarter [coin] is 1.75 mm. Pretty close to the bridge pickup height.
    Two dimes totals 2.7 mm. Pretty close to the neck pickup height.

    Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can play weird; that's easy.
    What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.
