    Re: Found a decent case for my Eastman OM

    I got one of those too but the chemical smell was really strong, so I returned it. Maybe it was just the one I got. It did fit well, though.

    Found a decent case for my Eastman OM

    Boy, had to search low and high. I got close with one at Elderly at an OK price but the shipping put it over $200. I need something for New England winter humidification. Anyway, just got this case...

    Re: Thumb Pain

    These thumb pain issues do suck as someone said. Don't forget to check your string height. I have recently discovered that both on my go to mandolin and a recently acquired octave mandolin, the...

    Re: Recording King Tenor

    I did replace the bridge pins, forgot to mention that. Personal preference but I got to the point that I used "no more than $250 invested" as a target. No particular reason. What it has done is to...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Just got the recommended case and it fits great. I wouldn't too it from a truck but more than OK for in house humidification in dry months. Thanks a lot for the suggestion kmmando and Huck!

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Anyone have a particular pedal that really adds something to the experience? I have a pretty basic set up - reverb, delay, looper. I do have a chorus pedal. Not a huge fan of that effect and I have...

    Re: Recording King Tenor

    Definitely. You can go heavier on the lower end and it gets even better. My G string is a 46. I did the same mods you did. Had an uneven fret issue around 13th fret that caused buzzing on the E...

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Finally was able to order one of these cases, thanks so much for the information. If you see this message, could you give a brief overview of what you did to retrofit this for the Tenor Tele? I can...

    Re: Eastman OM - a one-month review

    I am, yes and agree and also taking Matt Flinner's Octave course. Something is bound to stick, I figure.

    Re: Eastman OM - a one-month review

    "Sam Brown Hill" is addictive too - also from Joe's course. Finally have that down. And, you did a great job on Inverness - very smooth. Something for me to aspire to (next).

    Re: Recording King Tenor

    Yes, I own one and like it a lot. If you are interested in exploring, you can't beat the price. If you are planning to tune GDAE, I recommend using octave strings - that'll be the first upgrade (and...

    Re: Eastman OM - a one-month review

    I love my Eastman OM, I've got and had lots of instruments and I just think for what the price is, it's a very strong value and the sustain is amazing.

    Re: Mixed octave strings on low end

    Good advice, thanks. A quick look at Just Strings seems like the 12 string pairing for the G string would be a 46 and 30 and the D string would be a 32 and 14. I must have something close around here...

    Mixed octave strings on low end

    Hi folks - I have J80 strings on my Eastman OM and I'm interested in swapping in higher octave G and D single strings, so I'll end up with gG dD AA EE. The gauges on the low end now are 46 and 32. To...

    Re: Parlour King 19" tenor

    That's very impressive. Seems like the large lower bout and sound hole must do quite a bit for the low end and that narrow top bout is really eye catching. Wish I could hear it - and cedar to top it...
  20. Re: Nobody Knows You When .... chord progression confusion

    Fantastic - thanks for this, too. I'm sure this is a no brainer for you guys but having the underlying understanding - even roughly - lets me go to chord tones and then suddenly, I'm playing...
  21. Re: Nobody Knows You When .... chord progression confusion

    OK, interesting, thank you. So I guess the theory for that part is that the Dm is the relative minor of F so that they share the same notes and F is the IV. That's cool. Thanks for pointing that out.
  22. Nobody Knows You When .... chord progression confusion

    Last night I was noodling and thought "oh yeah, 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out' " - I used to fingerpick that on guitar. So for GDAE, I figured I'd give it a shot and looked it up on...

    OM case stinks

    I got a Carrion case for my Eastman Octave and while it fits fine, the chemical odor given off is bogus. I have left it open in the garage at night and in the sun during the day and it's not going...

    Re: Octave Mandolin Course

    Matt is the best, I'll take anything he offers and have. Jo's course on Peghead is excellent, too. The first tune by Duke Levine is beautiful and doable with som nice extras to grow into.
  25. Re: Octave Mandolin Course for tenor guitar players in GDAE?

    What Chris Gray said: definitely works. Sam Brown Hill is a great song. Also, Matt Flinner is teaching an Octave course right now and he is an outstanding teacher. I'm taking that one, too.
