    Re: Apollo Mike Marshall picks

    If I remember correctly, Mike had been using ProPlec picks for quite a while. I wonder how these will be different, aside from the price.

    Also, does anyone know whether Mike uses the same type of...
  2. Re: String Gauges For Cittern, changing Unisons to Octaves

    Iíd start by asking Nigel.

    In the meantime, some of the bouzouki players here who use octave pairs could give you recommendations for the G and D strings. Scale length will be a consideration,...
  3. Re: New Bela Fleck Album out - My Bluegrass Heart

    I ordered the cd through Mandolin when I got the RockyGrass show streaming “ticket,” so I’m not sure when I’ll be getting it. I’m still waiting for the new Watchhouse cd that I bought through...
  4. Re: Article: Sharon Gilchrist's Mandos, Cars & Coffee Vlog Airs T

    First, mandolins and beer. Now, mandolins and coffee. Things often come in three, so what's next? :popcorn:

    I really hope the lawyers don't get involved in this, given that JS probably already...
  5. Re: New Bela Fleck Album out - My Bluegrass Heart

    I haven't gotten the album yet, but I watched the broadcast of the band's RockyGrass set this evening. It was absolutely astounding --- and was apparently their first live performance. The music...
  6. Re: 'Good Vibrations' for 7 mandolins and 3 mandocellos

    That is quite an undertaking! Nice use of slide and bow, along with A/V technology!

    That song was such a leap forward from the rest of the Beach Boys catalogue. It was like if the Beatles had...

    Re: Frank Wakefield

    I got the teal album when it came out in 1972, after I saw Wakefield interviewed on David Frost's show, and I still play it a few times a year. His back-up band on that album included Tony Trischka...

    Re: Zimnicki in classified info

    It’s quite a striking instrument, and it’s at a really nice price point for a 10-string, let alone one with electronics. My main concern would be about the tone of the C string, since Elderly says...

    Re: Octave Mandolin Course

    Thanks for the info, Jim. I thought that all ukes were tuned in the same relationships, with the 4th string higher than the 3rd. So, when cunparis said that his bari uke was tuned like an OM, I...
  11. Re: Article: Modern Mandolin Camp Designed for Experienced Player

    On the camp website, I couldn't find any info about the classes. I found the schedule, which was a timetable of the course periods, and the instructor bios, but no info about the classes themselves.

    Re: Octave Mandolin Course

    I think it would be OK from a technical standpoint, since the scale length would be on the low end of the OM's range, and the tuning would be the same. However, I think that much of the music ---...

    Re: Sixties Music

    I'm still blown away every time I hear that PG&F version of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)." Grier and Flinner do phenomenal solos on that all the way through!
  16. Re: Octave mandolin advantages for an established guitar player?

    I've never been sure whether the difference between an OM and a bouzouki is the longer scale length or the possibility of octaves on the G and D courses. I'll leave that to others to answer. On The...

    Re: Horses of Dorrigo

    I think it kind of is, although I don't think it has any extra beats or measures. However, the G chord from the last measure of the second line continues halfway into the first measure of the third...

    Re: Horses of Dorrigo

    On further listening, I agree. I wonder if it has chord changes off of the 1 beat in some places. I love the flow of the tune.

    Horses of Dorrigo

    This is one of my favorite tunes on John Reischmanís new album. It works great on mandolin, mandola, or OM, since itís in D and rarely goes up to the E string. I canít tell what the key signature...

    Re: Mandolin Builder Recommendations

    Since you like the playability of your Eastman 315, an 815 should give you a significant increase in tonal quality while feeling the same. Others here can tell you whether the 815V —- which has a...

    Re: Amazing Nugget F5 at Carter's!

    Three weeks later, all three are still listed on Carter’s website. If any of those stunning mandolins were underpriced, I would expect them to be gone by now.

    It will be interesting to see if...

    Re: Octave Recommendations?

    Letís start with the Bridger. Its tone is coming from a red spruce (aka Adirondack) top and maple back and sides. So, I wouldnít rule out the maple OMís, but you might rule out Sitka spruce, which...
