    Re: Random mandolin sightings

    Sesame Street, S49 E27 "Little Bo Peep Lost Her Cow", :)) has a mandolin-shaped prop/model of some sort being 'played' by one of the puppets. Screenshots below. Click pics to make bigger:

    Re: Picking technique on electric mandolin?

    One of these years I'm going to build (out of whatever scrap and/or cheap materials I can find) a quickie 8-string electric mandolin-tuned object, :grin: and it will have 8 frets. :disbelief:...

    Re: What Do You Use for Editing Standard Notation

    Re: the first 3 tunes you learned?

    Some of the music styles, probably yeah. But mandolin was not my dad's main/best instrument by far, and his mandolin playing could probably have benefited from more dynamics or expression or...

  11. Re: Mandolinists RIOTING over unfair String License fee

  20. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Yep! :mandosmiley: I agree completely. :grin: Anything tuned in fifths, and (for me) preferably an octave lower than mandolin, for a more mellow sound. GDAE, or GDAEB, or even CGDAEB.
