    Re: What Do You Use for Editing Standard Notation

    I've been using Finale Notepad (the free version) for years.
    It's quirky and has limitations but it suits me fine.
    Works on Win 7 don't know what else.

  3. Re: Complete Bach 1st Cello Suite - ukulele in 5ths tuning

    Well done.

    I've been playing the Prelude on a baritone uke CGDA.
    It's amazing how much tone you can get from those little boxes with a light touch.

    It's behind schedule, but there is a world wide pandemic going on after all.

    Beautiful.

    I'm splitting my time between the Bach Prelude and a Vivaldi movement.

    Anything to silence the TV.

    Re: Recommendation for an electric?

    I've got an Eastwood Airline Mandola. Low price high quality.

    The mandos look very tempting.

    I have to push down harder than I would like to get a clean (buzz free) note.

    I'm wrapping up the busking season here in NYC (man it's cold).
    I started in May and did it 2 or 3 times a week for the last 7 months.

    I learned a lot also (as Chris Calley above said)....

    Re: I've Got A Feeling

    According to my bathroom scale 3.2 lbs

    It lighter than my Eastwood E Mandola & heavier than my Epiphone MM-30 mandolin.

    It's has a solid feel to it.
  14. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Mandolin never happened for me even after years of trying.
    Mandola is just perfect in every way.

    A non musician woman a few weeks ago asked me why my mandolin had a deeper voice.
    It was nice to...

    Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    I've been busking with mine all summer and yeah the reaction has been enthusiastic to my tiny guitar.
  16. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    My EDola has a very "woody" sound to it through a Blackstar amp and some eq.

    It's really unique. Not like a guitar at all.

    Re: Soft Picks ?

    Don't get the rubber picks IMO.
    I have some in various thickness and they are very harsh.
    Don't know why.

    Pro Plec is a nice choice.

    The Grolsch washers work great. But Fender sells a similar product.

    Same thing and pretty cheap.

    Re: What plectra for the mandole?

    After many changes of mind I think D'Andrea Pro Plec 1.5mm give me the woody dark sound I like.
    Their cheap enough to just give it a try.

    I bought a 49 key keyboard bag (lots of choices) and put foam in it.
    The foam cost more than the case.
