    Finnish fiddle tune Kellarin kautta

    Here's my attempt at Kellarin kautta by Otto Hotaikainen. Mandolin is my 1935 Gibson A-50 with elevated fretboard. Probably still a bit fast for schottish tempo. Didn't seem that fast when playing...
  4. One of the coolest quartet pieces ever: Samurai by Ryo Aoyama

    This is such a fun piece to play. I partnered with a guitarist friend to put together this quartet which turned out really nice.

    Ryo was inspired to write the piece by the main character from the...

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Interesting, chords are almost all I play. I finger the chord patterns to get to the melody. And yes, I play mostly chord-melody.

    Nice thing is, there's room for all of us. Never be afraid to...

    Conversion from cheap 6 string

    I bought this small (23" scale) guitar for $30 from a guy. (We did it in a parking lot, like it was a drug deal.) All laminate El Degas, which was a distributor (in the 60s and 70s?).

    The bridge...

    Re: looking for a small but good eq

    Re: Advice sought about 1917 Gibson H1 Mandola

    Yes, that can be done. It would require additional cabinet and finish work.

    It's better to avoid causing a problem to begin with, by not subjecting an old Gibson to too much string tension....

    Re: Playing Mandola - Tips & Tricks

    I often transpose down an octave if the tune will allow it (and if I can play it that way). The sixth fret is a lot farther away from the nut on a mandola, so it does require some pinkie stretch and...

    Very long shot, given how old these posts are - but does anyone have a copy of the transcription of this tune?
  24. Re: What under $1200 used tenors would you look at?

    Charley, I did!

    It was way under my budget and in pristine condition except for a bit of shrinkage on the pick guard. I like the scale and the neck and most importantly, the sound. The neck was...
