    Re: Ever heard of a "guitar chair?!"

    Ah, but you all missed the exquisite curved bars on the back of the chair. These have obviously been specially designed to improve the tone in the lower registers, and I imagine new versions will be...

    Re: Mandolin Rain - Video

    A very restful composition and video, Jozef. We have just had our first named storm of the year here in Scotland, Storm Arwen, so your video is a well-timed posting after the deluge.
  3. Re: Second regiment scottish horse John McColl

    Thanks again, Ranald. Cape Breton is certainly still a huge force in the world of traditional fiddling and there seems to be a vey close relationship with Scotttish fiddling.
  4. Re: Second regiment scottish horse John McColl

    Thanks for the clarification, Ranald. The Father John Angus Rankin that is the second tune in the set is very different from the Jerry Holland composition I know. I wonder if Father John was well...
  5. Re: Shove that Pigs Foot a Little Farther into the Fire

    Above all, you were having a lot of fun on this one as well as playing so well!
  6. Re: Happy Thanksgiving! (Turkey in the Straw)

    Fine picking and a great sound from your mandolin, Gunnar.
  7. Re: Second regiment scottish horse John McColl

    Re: Desk clamp hanger?

    Ray, I reckon my version is different from yours. The safety bar is part of the moulding of the hanger rather than having a discrete hinge holding it. It just bends out of the way but can be locked...

    Re: Desk clamp hanger?

    My Pub Prop takes my octave regularly over the past several years; the octave hangs from the holder, not touching the floor, while ny guitar does sit on the floor with the nck held by the Pub Prop. ...

    Re: Desk clamp hanger?

    I use a Pub Prop regularly in local sessions and it can accommodate a fiddle or mandolin as well as the guitar. It comes with fittings to hold the fiddle bow too. I have not had a problem with it...
  11. Re: Everything you wanted to know about the Irish bouzouki...

    Nigel, the UK Government never ceases to amaze me with its application (?) of its own rules. Now, perhaps if you were to become a Party Donor... Then not just a visa but possibly a seat in the House...

    Re: Euan Cattanach

    Sad news, Nigel. I remember that television programme where Billy acquired Euan's banjo. Another loss to the world of music.

    Re: Hammer-on practice tips?

    On the mandolin with its small scale length and higher string tension it is always a problem getting a good hammer-on, Sheila. I play a lot of bagpipe tunes on my mandolin and octave and use both...

    Re: Arpeggio's

    Em triad would have E, G and B, lowtone2. With the C included it would be an Em6, I think.

    Re: post a video of yourself

    Fine duet, Shawn. That Single Malt Fylde looks (and sounds) great with the stained top from the old whisky casks.

    Frank, thanks so much for posting my tune and even more for the lovely pictures of my home county. I really love that opening shot of Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe. I have photographed that scene so...
  24. Re: What Irish/Scottish music do Irish/Scottish people listen to?

    What Dagger says, certainly as far as Scottish music goes, and I would add the very many excellent Scottish Country Dance Bands, generally accordion-led, with second accordion, piano, fiddle, bass...

    Glad you are trying out the simplest option, Tug, and I hope it works for you in the longer term. Getting your fingers used to the big spaces at the edges will take a wee while but should become...
