    Re: Chart

    Looks to me like:

    Bmaj7 / C#-7 (F#7/E) | B/D# / E-7 A7 | D#-7 G#7 C#-7 F#7 | Bmaj7

    Sounds right too... :)
  3. Re: Another Question for the Theory Geeks (no mandolin content)

    9/8 gives you three beats each subdivided in three.

    So the beat is the dotted quarter note and the tempo is about 116 beats per minute.

    It's a waltz.:)
  4. Re: A.F. Anderson 12-string Mandolin made from old, 1660 London p

    Yeah, lots of free pianos around, though probably not many built from 200-year-old Brazilian rosewood.

    Beautiful old Hammond organs are also now worth next to nothing!
  5. Re: A.F. Anderson 12-string Mandolin made from old, 1660 London p

    I hadn't heard this, but I do recall a rumour from the seventies or so that a well-known British guitar builder was going around to country auctions buying old rosewood pianos (19th century...
  6. Re: A.F. Anderson 12-string Mandolin made from old, 1660 London p

    A few more questions: what is the string length, nut to bridge (or nut to 12th fret, times 2)? It's hard to get a sense of scale in the photo, but it looks like this might be longer than a normal...

    Re: Strap button on neck?

    Here's what I use. (Laughlin mandolin)

    I've had the same arrangement on a Mowry A and one or two other mandolins.

    Re: Strap button on neck?

    I would find that a real problem for playing up high on the neck. I've usually had a button put right on the back, into the heel of the neck. It's out of the way and very solid there. Works fine...

    Re: Help me use this diminished lick

    And on old 45's as well. For example:

    Re: Help me use this diminished lick

    Right, the chords of a minor key are based on the harmonic minor scale.

    Re: Help me use this diminished lick

    That is, C#dim7 over an A bass. (Normally someone else in the group will be playing the bass note, since mandolin has only four courses, and no real "bass" notes.)

    C#dim7 is a diatonic...

    Re: Tabs driving me nuts

    Normally tablature notation is like staff notation in that everything that is aligned vertically happens at the same time.

    Re: Ibanez Bowlback 805

    Another pawn shop, another Ibanez bowlback. I saw an ad for this one here in Victoria, and went down to take a look. It's a pretty different model from anything I've seen from Ibanez or Suzuki, and...

    Re: F-style with shorter fretboard?

    Hope you both find what you're looking for. In the meantime, putting a capo at fret one on a standard Gibson model would get you very close to a 13-inch scale.

    Could get a little confusing...

    (But one slash on an eighth-note stem means play sixteenths, two means thirty-seconds, etc.)

    Re: Mandolin missing 46 years

    This has got me thinking about a nice 'fifties Fender Dual Six steel guitar I had stolen out of an East Bay club in 1967. Anyone seen one around? No idea of the serial number, but I'll know it if I...

    Re: Stradolin "Artist" on ebay. Late 30s?

    Pretty sure that's a post-war Strad. Here's a 'thirties head (but with newer tuners).

    And I think the model called Artist was the one where the bridge is centered along the F-holes.

    Is this the version you're listening to, Lucy?

    If so, try these:

    Seems like the OP has chord names for which she wants wants mandolin fingerings. As Mike pointed out, all she needs is a source that gives fingerings for the common chords; not a matter of...
