    Re: A new tenor guitar?

    Hi Morix,
    I've sent you a PM as I live in France and have a couple of tenors I'm thinking of selling. If you live near me in France you'd be welcome to try some of my tenors. Even if they're not...

    Re: Tom 'Moongazer' Morici has passed

    I'm also very sorry to hear it. His excellent service, parts and advice greatly helped me get started in amateur instrument making.

    Re: Intro to Tenor Builders

    As I don't think anyone else has mentioned it, the OP's price range would include a mint-condition 1920s Gibson TG1. I've played a lot of tenors, modern and vintage, and for me, nothing can touch...

    Re: Mole In The Ground

    That's really kind, thanks; I'll look forward to giving this a go on my tenor guitar. I love all of Joe's tunes. Currently trying to get to grips with the instrumental "Bob's Bucket" from the same...

    Re: Georgia Bo Bo

    This is great like all your other videos. I didn't know this tune. Very helpful how you focus on the fretting hand. Many thanks.

    Re: Gibson TG-1 - 1929

    They're out there for much less but the condition's not the same: here's my 1928. She's really seen some strumming in her time. Plenty of work required but well worth it...154748

    Re: Getting into Jazz Tenor Guitar?

    I'd actually put in a plea for GDAE tuning because people who tune CGDA can already access a lot of tenor banjo material whereas, to my knowledge, there's nothing jazz-oriented out there for the...

    Thanks!
  12. Re: Anyone tried Aaron Weinstein's mandolin chord melody book on

    Thanks guys.
    The appeal, like with the Beatles book, for me would be having the tunes/exercises written out for GDAE rather than CGDA-tuned instruments, as is the case for tenor banjo tutors, but I...
  13. Anyone tried Aaron Weinstein's mandolin chord melody book on TG?

    Just wondering if anyone had tried this book on tenor guitar?

    I no longer play mando and stick to longer-scaled tenors now. I've had a lot of success and enjoyment out of the Beatles chord melody...

    I'd contact them, many German people speak excellent English and this shop also ships internationally. Looks like a nice instrument at a good price.

    Re: John Lawlor "chord melody Tuesday"

    I believe he tunes CGDA (please correct me if I'm wrong) so traditional jazz tenor banjo tuition would be a good way to start.

    Re: Anyone tried this for a 6-string tenor?

    The re-entrant tuning or something similar is what I was wondering about. I find that 5 strings in fifths gives me all the range I could ever need but if the 6th string could be useful, I'd consider...

    Anyone tried this for a 6-string tenor?

    I'm a big fan of 5 string tenors strung FCGDA and have been recently mulling over what it would be like to add a 6th bass string but strictly as a drone string or for occasional use to fill out...
