    Re: Know You Rider

    You're very lucky. I so wish I could have been there; I wasn't even born yet. If there's any show I would love to have seen in person in its full glory, it'd be 6/24/70, second of two shows that...

    Re: Know You Rider

    GD's version of this tune is a LOT of fun to play around with. The changes are pretty simple (same as Morning Dew): D-C-G-D (x2), walk up to F-C-F-C-Em-D. GD also occasionally did a much slower...

    Re: What Do You Use for Editing Standard Notation

    Hi Peter,
    I've been using Sibelius for many years, but I'm planning to move to Dorico. Dorico is a product designed to address many of the limitations and UI design issues that exist in Sibelius. ...

    Re: Speed related issues

    I'm mainly a bassist - rhythm, timing and groove are everything with bass. And I had it drilled into me early on that the metronome is your friend; it helps you develop that internal clock. 27...
  5. Re: Sierra Hull playing as half the audience walks away.

    Last time I tried to play a banjo had a similar effect on the people in the room :/ Luckily, there were no dogs present.

    Sorry, don't mean to hijack the topic here, but your quote made me think about something:

  7. Re: mandolin - after surgery to remove extended fingerboard

    I still don't get why it's there in the first place - can't really play up there unless you're after some weird special effects. I'll eventually have it scooped out on my KM1000; the fret ends on it...

    Re: the first 3 tunes you learned?

    Hi, I'm playing in D; mentally transposing up an octave plus a fifth from the cello score. In general, my fingers go in roughly the same places (though not necessarily the same fingers) as on the...

    Can be hard in these times of pandemics, but internet-based jam sessions are becoming a thing. I honestly haven't tried this yet (I will when time allows), but it seems popular. Here's a couple of...

    Down By The Salley Gardens

    And on the classical side, I'm starting to get a...

    Re: hand held recorder

    I have an Olympus LS-11 that I got about 10 years ago for recording gigs. It's proven very reliable and I still use it to this day. The built-in mics are good but there is a stereo mic input and...
  12. Re: Concert of Swedish folk music with bouzouki and mandobass

    Half my family were from Norway, and this brings back memories of my grandfather and his fiddle (not a Hardanger fiddle, just a "normal" one). Love it.

    Re: Mandolin Positioning When Sitting

    Is there an advantage to practicing while sitting?

    I'm new to mandolin, but an old hand at bass (which I usually practice standing or on a tall stool). It seems to me that when you're actually...

    Re: Your Mandolin Your Beer

    Not a fan of hoppy beer either - way too bitter for me. And IPA's and similar are about all you can find around here these days. Ew. Either way, I'd rather stick with my Chardonnay anyhow :)

    Re: Mandolin Set Up Ebook and Mandolin Users

    Thank you Rob, it's very generous of you to share this book. I've done setups on guitars and electric basses many times, but never a mandolin.

    Very happy with my McClung arm rest. I was getting pinched nerves from the sharp edge and tingling fingers - the arm rest put a stop to that. I may get one for a semi-hollow body electric...

    As far as I'm concerned, Jimi will never be Old School - some things are timeless.
