    Heh, well I appreciate it nonetheless. Unfortunately that's what I thought I did that put it in its current state, they were pretty well recommended and are sort of the only person near me. I'm...

    Welcome! Anything is okay as long as it sounds good to you, and (to a lesser degree, depending on what you're doing) those around you. It's good to learn about common practices and follow the advice...

    Intonation woes

    I recently got my MD-315 set up because the action at the nut was FAR too high (to the point where I was really badly hurting my finger). I'm happy to say that's no longer an issue, but am fairly...

    Re: Who makes a good Fiddle/Mandolin case?

    This seems odd, I feel like the extra padding would still be good to have especially given the convex shape of the back.

    Re: Wegen vs. Primetone vs. Clown Barf

    You might consider a blind test with a reveal at the end? I think it'd be interesting to form my opinion with no prior knowledge of which is which.

    B7b9

    I was following along with the Autumn Leaves from the Real Book and came upon the B7b9 chord.

    My understanding is:

    B: B D# F#
    B7: B D# F# A
    B7b9: B D# F# A C

    Is that right? I've been...

    Re: Right arm placement

    Right, I'm certainly no expert but I've heard a good pick angle is favorable as it helps the pick sort of move "through" the string, and is why some picks have that sort of asymmetric bevel (which...

    Flatwounds on an Eastman MD315

    I just had some EFW74s put on my MD315 during a set up just to give them a try and my goodness, I might just keep these on just for the left hand feel. It's incredible. I'm not even super convinced...

    Re: Vice grip fingers

    Out of curiosity, what's an example of a bar chord on a mandolin? I usually just do separate fingertips on each string that needs one, or at most one fingertip for two strings (like for an A chord).

    Re: Nut Width Preference?
