  1. Larry the Logger (Two-Step) by the Doobie Brothers -bad tune?

    Does anyone have the .abc for this tune?
    I’d like to learn it on mandolin but I’m not sure if the tune’s any good. I will only know that once I’ve learned it.
    Merry Christmas fellow...

    Re: Ouch! Mandolintab.net is unauthorised?

    Another thing I love about mandolintab.net is that the PDFs are really clear and precise, and you don’t spend time with individual small details.
    It’s basic, you just paste the .abc and get the...

    Re: Ouch! Mandolintab.net is unauthorised?

    Thanks Mike, I wondered whether the banner ad had anything to do with it. Maybe they need funding. I don’t know.
    Have a nice day! :)

    Ouch! Mandolintab.net is unauthorised?

    Just got a strange result: ‘Unauthorised’, and being the freedom-loving soul that I am, it always raises red flags. :))

    Checked using different platforms. All on Safari IOS, cleared out cookies,...

    Re: The Banks Hornpipe—Colin Botts

    Thanks, interesting tune.
    It seems to be one of those competition tunes that fiddlers use to determine their level, just as Arkansas Traveller means intermediate mandolinist.

    Thanks JimG:...

    Re: Fiddle Tunes with History?

    Great rhythm on this one.
    Here’s a nice memorable tune for a not-so-nice memorable time in our history.

    Re: I’m afraid woodshedding has made me worse

    I’m not sure what the OP understands by the term ‘woodshedding’.
    I thought it meant something reclusive, structured and focussed?

    Re: When a mandolin tunes itself

    Do you notice this more in the winter, or with longer journeys?
    High humidity, though cozy room?

    I once put my hand on the headstock of a ukulele that had a torsion bar. I did this out of...

    Re: When a mandolin tunes itself

    If the accordion is very wet-tuned then I guess that could make your mandolin appear to be in tune, at least with the others.
  14. Re: Best way to learn to play Smooth and Clean (not sloppy)?

    Lots of good advice above.
    If you can stand this, try setting your metronome so that you hear two or even four clicks or drumbeats for every time you have to play a very slow eighth note in a scale....
  15. Re: Embarassing Question - Which Mandolin to Bring to Jam?

    Good news. If you bring along your good mandolin and it gets a nasty ding in it then people will at least remember that it was you who had that nice mandolin! :))

  16. Re: Embarassing Question - Which Mandolin to Bring to Jam?

    I’d like to say take the expensive one but two things:
    You don’t know how wild a new session (for you) is going to get.
    Is it in a bar, a park, a metro station? :)

    And with the cheap one,...

    Re: Mandolin open tunings

    A cheap instrument tuned GDGD can actually sound great.
    Try FCFC too, it can bring out some extra tone.
    These tunings (almost-fifths) can help with the transition to standard tuning, fiddle or...

    Yes, I agree, naming names very quickly becomes political.

    :)) Sometimes :whistling:

    Good lesson.
  24. Re: Why are some songs not written in the key they are in?

    It could quite easily have been a music writing exercise, a bit like a dictation exercise while learning a language.

    Exercise: Here’s a blanc template with no sharps or flats, listen to the tune,...

    Re: Banjo or banjolin?

    Problem is most people have heard these instruments indoors, and often inside a small room cramped up with a whole load of other instruments. No breathing space.
