  5. Re: I published a book of my original compositions for oud

    Do you have another shortcut to the book? Iím very interested but the link has expired.
  6. Re: How often should my mandolin need to be tuned?

    Re: Double stop soloing help.

    I went over to patreon and looked at David’s solo on Durang’s Hornpipe, the chorus with a lot of doublestops. He’s definitely playing the chords rather than just in the key, but one thing that might...

    Re: XT we barely new ya!

    I just read that D’Addario uses different coatings on wound strings only. In other words, on the XS set, the plain steel strings use the same coating as the XT set. So it would be easy but expensive...
