    Re: How to play harmony

    Would be good to think about your terminology, perhaps.

    "Chord notes" i.e. "chord tones" of Gmaj chord = G, B, D ... so the next chord note in the key of G on melody note G would be a B note (B is...

  8. Re: Major Double Stops Lesson (ex. from ‘Rise’ Eddie Vedder) Part

    Hey Simon, thanks for sharing!

    The A# is a glaring "typo" (okay, not literally a typo but an error) because the F scale has A natural as third followed by a Bb for the fourth degree, and the IV &...

    Jim, I can show a couple of samples of Steve James from the first tuning mentioned by Irenee, which he calls "high-strung" mandolin. I'm sharing these two only for the purpose of discussion here,...

    Re: Altering Original Tempo

    I find it hard to reference “original tempo” anyway, unless you’re discussing an original tune as canonized by its author? I think you can, and should, experiment all you want with tempo and play it...

    Yep, that's what he did, Scotter. Also, he tunes it as a mandola (C, G, A, D). More than you want to know about Johnny's mandolin: http://www.emando.com/players/Gimble.htm
