  1. Re: Tip: Replacing Book Bindings with Spiral Bindings

    I also printed it double-sided but Staples or Kinko's said it was too large for one book. I guess there are coils that will handle larger books but maybe whoever did it for me did not deal with those.

    Re: Fan-fret mandocello build

    Ok, Tonydxn et al: after you solve this luthiery puzzle the next level it to create a fan-fret Gelas model mandolin. I think I might have to take some dramamine for that one. :)

    Here's our friend...

  4. Re: Forty progressive studies for the mandoline, Op. 50 - G Hucke

    These would be a good way for you to learn to read notation. And if you are familiar with fiddle tunes, you might also use some fiddle tune book like Ryan's Mammoth Collection all in notation to read...
  5. Re: Forty progressive studies for the mandoline, Op. 50 - G Hucke

    Thanks again, Eoin, for posting this scan. I just read through the first handful of etudes and one warning. The plates they printed this might have gotten worn down a bit from multiple printings...
  6. Re: Tip: Replacing Book Bindings with Spiral Bindings

    There is a great Irish tune book from a session in Kingston, Canada. I think it is over 500 pages in total. I think the limit to spiral/coil binding might be ~250 pages so I had to split it into two...

    Re: Tenor banjo help

    How old it this tenor? Does it have a skin head on it? An old loose skin head would definitely sound muddy.

    In any case—skin or plastic—see how it does with the head tighter. Hopefully that patch...
  9. Re: What does a mando set-up cost in your area?

    Unless you have a Guitar Center where you live that has an excellent luthier I would steer clear. The one I go to has a young woman with an attitude who might know how to set up an electric guitar....

    Re: Piccolo (Soprano) Mandolins

    I don't have any modern versions just vintage ones. Here are my two pictured with a standard Vega bowlback. The Vega on the left next to a Leland piccolo (Lyon & Healy around 1913) and a no-name...

    Congratulations in any case. It looks lovely.

    Re: Five String Madness

    Yes. It is confusing having that extra course. I have a five-string viola with a high E. I wonder if after you get used to it it will be harder to go back to the 4 course instruments.

    This might be a good tutorial to start with for Québécois footwork that fiddlers often accompany themselves. Andre Brunet is a phenomenal musician. You can take that from there to more complex dance...
