    Re: Can you recommend a good chord book?

    Re: Can you recommend a good chord book?

    Why don’t you start with the chord library on this site under ‘listen/learn’ menu. Building chords using triads is, I think, the best way to go in the long run.

    Another source is mandozine.com,...

    Re: Refinishing a Flatiron F5?

    Since you asked,

    Re: Double Standard

    To me that’s part of the issue. The site is information dense, and searching the forums using the site tool is often not useful. Even the site moderators suggest using Google and helpfully provide...

    Re: Ready built electric mandolin necks?

    Advertise them for what you would like to get. If they sell out in an hour, price was too low. If nobody buys one, either the price was too high, or the market is too thin.
