  1. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I don't have the mandola tab, no. I do have the guitar tab though. I was thinking about putting it in TEF and then trying to convert it from guitar to mandola.
    I caught the A part by repeated...
  2. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    tmsweeney is right about sharing a lot of sonic space with the guitar.

    I've been playing along to Eric Skye's "Kathryn by the Delaware" on the mandola. I can match the pitch of his guitar part on...

    Re: Us newbies are cracking on ;)

    I find the Page 3 shots distracting too. The instruments are porn enough! I could stare at them for hours. Sorely tempted to ask for a 5 string telecaster shape with 15" scale length!

  4. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    Slap a capo on the octave mandolin at the fifth fret and have a go!

    The scale will be a bit shorter than the usual 16" or 17" but the fingering will be the same.

  5. Re: In praise of solid body mandolins.

    How about:
    6) 100% more control over your tone. No reliance upon sound engineers who may or may not know what a mandolin is supposed to sound like.
    7) Cool chord inversions available if you use a...

    Re: 8 string solid body playability

    Frets can be changed, and all mandolins need a set up from time to time. Solid body emandos are no exception. So don't let the need for a set up or even fret size dissuade you from buying a...

    Re: Acoustic pedal

    I was thinking of it not for sounding acoustic, I have enough acoustic mandolin family instruments that it's not necessary in that capacity. I was thinking of adding a bit of reverb (outboard of the...

    I'd like to try one. If I can find a shop here that carries it, I'll give it a go.

    Re: Eastwood Cosey electric

    I'm trying to sort out why I like Pete Cosy's guitar but not the Eastwood mandolin version of it.

    Cosy's guitar is cool because it's an approximation of a mandolin, a mandolin scaled up if you...

  12. Re: Electronic tuner: guide, or unquestionable authority?

    These are both about guitars, but you get the idea.

    Tuning is relative because it has been equalised in western music. (Thank Bach for that.)
    Trust your ears, but agree about these things with...
  13. Re: What's this then -electric Bandurria?

    Daniel Lanois played one of these on U2's The Joshua Tree.
    Listen for the scratchy bit in the background. ;)

    Re: Eastman El Rey Video Review

    The e string issue is endemic. It cannot be avoided.
    Nothing will make an electric mandolin have the same output as an electric guitar. Electric mandolins have shorter scale lengths, and...

    Re: Playing a five string vs a four

    I think of a 5 string emando as a mandola with a cheater 'e' course.

    Get yourself started with mandola chords/CGDA. Then start playing scales using all 5 strings. What you'll quickly sort out is...
  18. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    The whole idea of electrifying instruments was to amplify the acoustic sound. It follows on from other efforts: Archtops, Resonators, reverberation boxes, etc. Our own patron saint of the mandolin,...
  19. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    Take all this advice with a grain of salt and use according to your situation.

  21. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I'm not sure what you're counting as a mandolin, but I currently have 8 mandolin family instruments (3 solid body electric, 2 F5s, 1 hollowbody electric, 1 mandola and 1 octave mandolin), 4 guitars...
