    Cole mandolins

    I contacted Ron Cole back in 2000 about building me an F-5. He used bubble big leaf maple for the 2 piece back. I wanted a slightly wider neck than standard. He made a jig and custom built the...

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    Iím a dominant lefty and could never play righty. Like many things, I think handedness falls on a spectrum and some leftyís can play righty, while for others itís not feasible. Itís hard enough to...

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    You're making a great point.

    I've been playing guitar for over fifty years and have never been able to get a good alternating bass going. About a year ago I attended a guitar workshop with drop-D...

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    A little over a year ago I was looking to learn mandolin and took some good advice about learning to play right handed (even though I am a lefty). Never having played a fretted instrument (I am a...

    Re: Understanding double-stops...

    Harmonized scales are just making 3 or more note chords in 3rds on each scale degree. Thus, the "part of the chord - various combinations of 1 3 and 5 tones" idea is part and parcel of harmonizing...

    When you make it look like vector multiplication, it gets my hopes up - maybe I can figure this out....
  8. Re: Help! I can't hear the beat when I play a break

    I'm sorry I've not been quick to respond to y'all this week; it's been an especially full one for us, but I really appreciate all your thoughts.

    Several of y'all mentioned metronomes. I have...
  9. Re: Anyone know of a website or app that will display all chord n

    I made an webapp a while back that does what I think you're asking:
    chords.cc
    Also if you have any suggestions for improvements I'd be happy to consider them...

  10. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    I've always really loved the NS Micro tuners, and they just released a new one in the last month or so with a much brighter nicer display. The clip is also redesigned and lets me hide the tuner on...
  11. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    Another plus, besides working well and being accurate it that the batteries last. I have used mine daily for a year it seems, while my partner is always changing her battery.
  12. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    another vote for the TC unitune. Very bright and the two colors make it obvious when you've hit the pitch. Also extremely accurate, when you tune each string in a pair, they are actually in tune with...
  13. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    +1. This is the reason that I switched from the NS Micro to the Unitune.
  14. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    I love my Peterson HD Clip and in full sun I have no problem seeing it but be warned if your the kind of person who likes a tuner that just locks in this isn't for you. It is so accurate you can see...
  15. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    In my experience, the NS-Mini keeps tuning even as the battery weakens AND the display dims - even if not enough to be obvious. Maybe just try a new battery? FWIW, it has beecome my go-to tuner for...
  16. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    I have great luck with this:

    https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/UniTuneClip--tc-electronic-unitune-clip-clip-on-chromatic-tuner

    This is my new go-to clip-on.
  17. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    Peterson strobe tuner. Used it outdoors at a festival this past weekend. Quite easy to read. Did see a number of folks using red Snarks (don't know which model, sorry). They seemed to work well...
  18. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    Polytune or unitune has a nice bright display.
  19. Re: Looking for a clip-on tuner that works well in daylight...

    I use a Boss TU-10 that switches from LED to LCD in sunlight (or maybe it's using both at the same time?) making it readable outdoors

    Re: Left hand

    I'm obviously not getting it. What's unusual about how she holds the mandolin?
  21. Re: How to build a dynamic practice routine...

    Hi Dad!! :grin:

    Think of your “repertoire” as a big circle on a piece of paper. Now inside that is a smaller circle that I call “active repertoire”. This means a piece you can always play no...
  22. Re: How to build a dynamic practice routine...

    Warmup. 10%
    Technique practice, scales, new scales or chords or inversions. 30%
    New repertoire. 30%
    Old repertoire. 30%

    This is based on an Evan Marshall workshop about effective practice.

  23. Re: Proper form for playing B major shape chords on mandolin

    Ralph makes a good point about frequencies, but I'm with you. The mandolin can be approached as having two "bass" strings and two "treble" strings because musical terms can be approached relatively,...

    How I am working on chords (and scales for that matter)

    I have a file which shows the fret-board out to 12th fret (I've done computer design, so its an Illustrator type program, you could print...
