    Re: Key of Bb

    On a flute, the Eb/D# requires the use of the same little finger key.

    It's usually called "the Eb key"; however from a theory POV the name of the pitch depends on the key you are playing in.

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    Yeah! Keef's 5 string open G stuff!

    My point was that "Kashmir" had an electric DADGAD part. But it does work well as an unplugged piece.

    Re: Key of Bb

    A very good question, but unless you're playing jazz or other genres with a wider harmonic vocabulary than most rock, pop, country and Bluegrass, , these are not common chords, beyond a V7+!

    Re: Key of Bb

    In Eb the "fifth" or V chord is Bb. A C chord is the V of F.



    See below about the "II" chord.



    Yes, the V of V...or the V of any chord. It's a secondary dominant, particularly the V7...

    It's the same "family" of styles!

    I do recognize Italian based styles, though :)

    It's still good playing from you and your band.

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    thanks for the other Led Zep DADGAD comments. Black Mountain Side was acoustic, Kashmir was electric.

    Page called it the "CIA" tuning - Celtic, Indian, Arabic.

    All very true!

    It's the player not the tuning that really matters.

    Re: Mandolin to DADGAD

    DADGAD has become a very popular tuning, particularly for Celtic styles of music - although Led Zeppelin used that tuning for pieces like "Kashmir".

    It differs from open D (D A D F# A D) by not...

    Re: Mando Mafia cd tracks on youtube

    Nice playing!

    I guess "mafia" covers a lot of musical territory, it seems....I hear a lot of American rootsy style and other things, but "Maria", "Santa Maria Polka", are more Italianate. Good...

    Re: Cumbus Mandolin

    Those are fairly common and can sound pretty good when set up. Plus the action is adjustable with a single neck bolt.

    Re: Andy Statman's Jazz Mandolin series

    Yes, the Coker book is great for learning modern jazz. Just don't forget to learn how to play the chord changes/chord arpeggio method too - it helps you make sense of the chord/scale method.

    Re: Turns and Mordents

    If you ask me, the answer is "of course, yes." :)

    But be aware what are the composer's suggestions, the editor's suggestions, and where your own interpretation would use such ornaments.

  23. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?
