    Re: Little Rock Getaway - Dave Peters

    Very cool, this is obviously where Dave learned the melody, and he also has Johnny's mandolin solo transcribed in his Masters of the Mandolin book. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Re: Once A Week Jethro Burns Mandolin Playing Discussion

    I wish I could have met Jethro. Bet we would have been buddies, although I'm sure he never met a mandolin player he didn't like ('cept ol' Bill:) ). I have been lucky enough to have some time with...

    Re: Chopin on my Eastman Mandolin

    Hi Mitch, nice playing! And very cool multitrack/video editing! Your pick grip / the way you plant your wrist and move your hand / etc... is not that big of an issue, IMO.... The main technique...

    Hi Jairo, the g__ means down stroke, so down stroke through both notes of each eighth-note grouping in 72.

    Re: Calace Method Help

    Hello Jairo, In the first exercise, my understanding is that you play the notes separately with down strokes. Like this:

    The pattern is the Hokum Bow, most famously used in the tune Orange Blossom Special. Reproduce it at a basic level on the mandolin by playing three-note groupings across two strings:

    Re: G Chord
