    Re: Blue Chips

    Some funny stories here. I think most of us have been down on hands and knees searching for a pick. I have not lost my BC after 6 years but it certainly has jumped out of my fingers and made a run...

    Well, this will be quite amazing for the mandolin players around here, close and far. I regularly go to Gruhn's and Carter's which currently has the best mando selection in Nashville. But if the...

    I can't say enough good things about Emory...

    I can't say enough good things about Emory Lester. I first learned of his mandolin playing from the Northfield videos and yes, I did finally buy one! And I met Emory at a mando camp in Nashville, so...

    That registration link is hard to find. @Bill thanks for posting the link. Turns out it's at the very top of JimRichter.com in a dropdown menu to the right of the home page link. The name of this...
  5. Re: Are There Mandolins with Necks Wider than 1 1/16"

    I bought a wide nut Lafferty from the Mandolin Store and it's been great for me, since I have been a guitar player for 50 years. It allowed me to progress in my playing. Now when I play on a standard...

    Re: Daley F5 "Hoss Replica"

    I don't know what happened to it. It was in Carter's for quite some time and I played it every time I was in the store. It truly is an amazing mandolin. Loud and responsive. Very nicely balanced....

    Re: Tab vs ear

    Exactly what I would have said.

    Let me add that written music is a great help for learning music, but playing by ear gives the ultimate freedom to play what you feel.

    Re: The Beatles

    Many of the songs that were attributed to Lennon & McCartney were actually fully written by just one of them, but they had an agreement to put both names on a song. For instance "And I Love Her" was...

    JonZ, I think you have completely missed the purpose of a metronome.

    Re: Anyone NOT like Blue Chip picks?

    I got a couple BC's at Carters in Nashville, because they let me try before buying which really helps. After using them for the last year or more I can say that I like them but they are not...

    Re: How to start the day

    Agreed!

    Thing I haven't been able to figure out is why I actually play better in the morning, don't seem to need a warm-up. Any other time of day I have to warm up for some time before my fingers...

    Re: Refretted a year after being refretted?

    I wore out the first 9 frets on my mandolin in just 9 months. Deep grooves. I replaced just the first 9 with Evo Gold. All I can say is fantastic! Now I have another 2 years on the Evo Gold and not a...

    Re: Modes are so confusing

    It becomes overly complicated with too much thought and too much explanation. For instance, forget about all other keys except key of C with no sharps or flats.

    In a C major scale, these are the...

    Re: New at Mandolin-question about fingering

    Learn the rules then break the rules. Two frets per finger is a good rule, but doesn't mean it applies in all situations. Sometimes to execute a chromatic run well it helps to use one finger per...
  16. Re: Can Guitar Lessons Help Me Play Mandolin Better?

    Not really. A little bit yes. Both are fretted string instruments. It helps to recognize chords on the guitar players hand. But a mandolin is very different. But it won't hurt, unless you spend more...

    Re: Accuracy

    As they said, practice slowly. Slow slow. With metronome is best, but even without. Practice your chosen tune purposely, pay attention to finger placement, correct fretting, intonation. Make each...

    Wow! Thanks for posting this. I had forgotten all about Muleskinner and certainly had never seen any footage of them perform. What a lineup for this band and watching early Dawg is great.

    Tom, another excellent arrangement and recording. I'm impressed. And I thought you did a great job on Old Brown Shoe as well. I see a trend here and I hope it continues. Thanks for sharing.
