    Help me use this diminished lick

    I am working on a chord melody, and there is a nice diminished lick in it. I need help with using it in another context.

    The lick is pretty simple. One chord shape that moves up three frets, and...

    Re: Django in June 2018

    Cool! I will definitely cede to Don on the levels.

    However, I just want to say that my overall experience has been great. And when I started, my knowledge of the genre was pretty limited. ...

  7. Re: New Stiernberg Soundslice chord/melody lesson series

    I purchased the first two lessons in the series and am really satisfied. The amount of information within the lessons is robust.

    I also had an issue with my log-in, and the Soundslice folks fixed...

    Re: Mando Strat, strings, scarcity, and value

    Len - Sounds like you got a great deal because that is what I paid for my Mando Strat. It was new, but I would rather have an extra pickup. By the way, live St. Pete, work in Clearwater!

    Re: Mando Strat, strings, scarcity, and value

    I agree with this, but my expectations were realistic given the cost of the instrument. I like it, but don't love it. I would definitely part with it for 1K. Which seems crazy.

    Ps. I am...

    Re: Mando Strat, strings, scarcity, and value

    Mine is pretty meh as well. I mainly use it un-amplified because it is quiet. But I was surprised to see that it might be hard to replace.

    Craigslist prices seem to be holding at $300, which...

    Mando Strat, strings, scarcity, and value

    I purchased a fender mando strat a few years ago. I was looking to change the strings on the e-mando and realized that the instrument had been discontinued. I was surprised to see that they are not...
  12. Re: Questions about strap button and octave pairs

    Yes. It's octave pairs for now, but I likely will go back to octave unison. The multiple voicings of the instrument was a huge advantage that I wasn't expecting... being a newbie.

    Having the...
  13. Re: Questions about strap button and octave pairs

    Thanks again for the help, everyone. I have decided not to do the strap button for now. Tie around the neck is working fine.

    And I ordered a few sets of strings and will experiment with octave...
  14. Re: Questions about strap button and octave pairs

    Wow. Thank you for answering my questions. This is a huge help. My instinct would have been to have strung the OM like a 12-string guitar, but I think I will take your advice and try the lower...
  15. Questions about strap button and octave pairs

    Hello, I was hoping to rely on the collective forum wisdom for two questions:

    1. My octave mandolin has no strap button. I am currently using a strap around the neck of the instrument. I am...

    Just picked up a copy of Rocksmith 2014 for the PS4 and it allegedly works with electric mandolins. I thought that I would post my initial impressions. It comes with a USB to quarter inch jack.

    Adjusting the action at the bridge made a huge difference. No more freakish low sustain and more playable.

    Re: New Fender Emando

    Got mine yesterday. I like it, but have a few issues. When amplified, the sustain on the lower pitched strings (g and a) is way longer than on the higher pitched e string. Almost absurdly longer. ...
