    Re: the first 3 tunes you learned?

    I started with guitar around 1966, didn't pick up a mandolin until 2014!

  6. Re: Old Milanese Mandolin 1890 c. project on eBay

    I’m curious, how is a 6 string instrument considered a mandoline? Scale length? If I had guessed, I’d have taken it for a lute.

    Using the white and black piano keys to differentiate the natural notes from "accidentals" was one of the details I found to be interesting when I first looked at it. It's a cool idea and a nice...

    Re: Pachelbel's Canon and Gigue in D

    1. If the Canon were not a beautiful piece of music, it would not be so popular.
    2. If the chord progression were not cool :cool: and useful :mandosmiley: , it would not be so prevalent.
    3. If the...

    Re: Comfy in our new RV

    That's a common story, I think :)

  19. Re: why are some chords for guitar not listed in chord books for

    kjbllc - I don't think it's unusual to be flummoxed a bit by the way chords sound on the mandolin, at first. Your ear (hearing) will grow along with your skill and with your knowledge of chords. As...
