    He plays in F major but to get the same G-D formation strum feeling on the mandolin itís better to play it in...

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    Hey Tom, many thanks for the TAB, I hadn't realised classical music was so easy!
    I guess it's like four fiddle tunes in a row. :))

    -isn’t bariolage just a fancy way of saying Old Time?

    Re: Building Speed with 16th Notes

    Could try clusters of 3-6 notes and a five to ten second hesitation in between with continuous metronome during the rest time?
    Another one (I think) is to get a clear idea (as a discipline) that...

    Re: The Christmas Song chord progression

    Just by the way.
    If you ever find a note on the fretboard and you think it’s the key then try playing the closed position major scale using it as the root.

    -if you can play cleanly and very fast, then well done. It takes a lot of hard work to get there, and you can’t force it.

    Re: Octave Mandolin (GDAE) vs Mandola (CGDA)

    Octave’s a lot more versatile, with a capo, and especially if the guitarist is absent.
    Mandola with capo on second fret and played one string down is cool, much easier to play fast.

    We have slow airs south of the border too, with words or lyrics.

    Poll: Re: Poll for Song A Week Social Group Week #535

    Good advice as usual from Mr. Kelly.

    I wonder if this tune could be played as a Slow Air.
    -but my metronome wont go that way. :)

    Something on my ‘To Learn’ wishlist.
