    Re: Top strength/Tuning stability

    If you have only a single transverse brace across the top under the bridge then it may well be that you will have to add further bracing, especially if you have sanded the top down after the...

    Re: MuseScore software

    I use it as my notation siftware for all the reasons mentioned above. Version 3.5.0 is my current version and this allows you to input the chord symbols as does previous versions, but now the chord...

    Re: Bohemian Zwiefacher

    Fine selection of pieces here, Ondrej. I love the look of intense concentration on your face as you scan the notation.

    Great wee tune, Amanda, and so well played. :mandosmiley:
  6. Re: Two Hornpipes: Rights of Man and Off to California

    Lovely set and playing, Dave. Off to California is one of my favourites and a tune we played a lot in our ceilidh band here in Scotland.
  7. Re: A tune I wrote for octave mandolin - Something Squirrelly

    Great, driving jig you have written, and you play it really well. Your octave sounds great too.

    Re: First builds finished at last.

    Incredible work - certainly not what I would imagine for first-time builds (going from my own first efforts!). You can be really proud of your achievements, Mikeyb.
  9. Re: Couple of tunes on the mandolin from Ye Vagabonds!

    Lovely playing, and such great duetting. Really together.

    Fine collaboration, Bren. Lovely blend of all the instruments and a great tune with "continental" flavours specially on the box!

    Re: What to call this position?

    You are using guitar fingering by what you say here, Gordon - i.e. one finger per fret rather than covering two frets per finger as is usual for mandolin playing. I would say you could call it open...
  14. Re: Meet new duo The Foreign Landers - David and Tabitha Benedict

    Amazing duo. So tuned in to one another and so happy in their playing, and no part of the neck of either instrument left unplayed!

    Re: Small rattle in soundboard...

    Re: hand held recorder

    When you talk about "going in and adding whatever.." are you thinking about multitrack recording, overdubbing another layer on to your existing track. I use the Tascam DR-05 and like it a lot, but...

    I too have a soprano uke with the Aquila Nylgut string set (GDAE) and as Bunnyf says, it is fine for playing quietly in the house and very easy on the fingers. I adjusted the nut height on the uke...

    Re: Dagger Gordon video

    Certainly a big move outside the Scottish comfort zone, David. A bit like some of the material our new young bands are playing on the Scottish scene, I feel.

    Re: Octave Mandolin Tips

    Kyra, with your small hands I would suggest that you learn to play using guitar fingering rather than mandolin fingering for your fretting hand. At the risk of sounding patronising (you say it is...
