    Re: RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

    The success of Mr. Bojangles was a great boon to JJW, and the NGDB version of Mr. Bojangles was a big influence on my own musical journey at the time, but his Viva Terlingua album had an even greater...

    Re: Key of Bb

    Tom, in general, you would use the seven alphabet letters to name each chord in any key. So you will have 7 chords in the key named after the seven letters A - G, in alphabetical order.

    In a major...

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    Wow, another very thorough explanation, thanks Caleb. In one video, Tony McManus made all the old slide blues and Dylan Blood On The Tracks tunes I play seem really boring. Now I want to do DADGAD...

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    I guess I've answered my own question with a brief internet search, people who prefer DADGAD call it "modal D tuning" since the open chord is neither major nor minor, of course the chord is a sus4...

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    Like pops1 I have a small repertoire I do in open D tuning, and I have a question for all the DADGAD players, which is why is DADGAD tuning preferred by you guys instead of open D? (D-A-D-F#-A-D)? I...

    Interesting question, Rikker, would be a great topic maybe for its own thread. In a recent Mandolins & Beer episode with Walter Carter, Walter had some interesting insights about his preference for...

    Re: Mandolin Heroes Podcast

    Made me want to find some more old stuff to listen to as well. I’ve got a decent Monroe library, but lacking in many others you mentioned. BTW, I was glad to hear mentioning Buck White! One of my...

    Re: Help with musical notation and tabs

    Time flows across tablature same as it does in notation, John, so the F note you see tabbed is played first, followed by striking all three strings in the F shape with a percussive mute on the F...

    Re: Ways Like A Crawfish

    Thanks Simon. The riffs were inspired by Bo’s recording, I couldn’t nail them like he does, but I spent time a few weeks ago trying to get what I could. I love his licks too! Tri-ple-ty stuff, the...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    Teflon won’t hurt, and it could help. I used the HF diamond files on mine, but could only work the tip on those slots - and I did from tuner side of the nut, where it doesn’t hurt (and can actually...

    Re: A-strings constantly going out of tune

    Sue, you've noticed that pressing the strings between tuners & nut does affect the pitch noticeably, per your post (#7) above. So, more than lubricant (graphite, etc.), what you really need is to...

    Re: Help with musical notation and tabs

    John, an Fmaj triad consists of FAC - just like the spaces on the treble clef! Easy to remember.

    Nevermind, sorry John, I thought you wrote to play the D open, my bad.

    "x" indicates a mute note...

    Ways Like A Crawfish

    Hangin' round the hotel room 1,700 miles from home, got the day off, so I played this old Bo Carter tune which fits pretty fine on the mandolin.

    Seems he does have quite a talent for pedagogy. A bit long-winded, but very thorough and very helpful. Thanks for sharing.

    Yes, the x would indicate a mute, for whatever reason.

    Re: Autumn is for playing mandolin.

    Yep.

    By the way, Caleb, have you tried your hand much at working up some solo vocal numbers with mandolin accompaniment? I’ve been intrigued with trying to do that the last few years.

    If nothing else, take the opportunity to do some busking. I assume you’ll be traveling with your teacher, the violinist, as you’ve done in the past? If so, this may be an excellent time for y’all to...
  25. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Ralph, both you and sblock make some valid points, but to see either form of notation as harmful is a fault, I think. You say that an exclusive reliance on one or the other can be harmful, and that...
