    Re: Education

    I played through both the artist and the mini, both sounded very, very good. I bought the mini merely to save cash, as I had tried (and owned) other amps and also watched numerous online demos and...

  5. Re: A tuner shootout: TC Electronic Unitune vs. Peterson StroboCl

    To get the least harmonic "interference" from a string, pluck it with fleshy part of finger at the twelfth fret. With that in mind, I go for a compromise, generally tuning with a "darker" sounding...
  6. Re: Micing mandolins for recording purposes...

    I’ve used AT PRO35 for a clip on condenser. Also used the old standard SM 57 on a stand. Both work very well in different circumstances. But recently I had K & K pickups installed, and loving them...

    I don’t mean to strictly categorize it though. I remember one of the tunes he sings in Gb is by Chris Knight, from Kentucky. This song: https://youtu.be/0U2Px5OR0eA

    Some good practice

    I recently hit upon a fun practice regimen, entirely by chance. It involves nothing more than playing with my son.

    He's long been in this phase where he wants to keep his guitar tuned down a half...

    Happened to me last night, and I remembered this thread from last year :)

    Ah, yes, I agree. Chart wasn’t useful for me personally. YMMV. But Don’s advice was helpful, as usual. Much appreciated.

    Re: Improvising

    I haven't gotten that impression from anyone's remarks here; "compete with composing"? It is plain and simply composition, on the fly and in the moment. Immediate composition.
