    Re: Next-generation Wood?

    I went back to watch that video, Wrnch. Again, I wonder why? Because we can, I guess, is a good enough answer. But that shovel-guitar will not become a big seller...

    Re: Next-generation Wood?

    I can think of only a few reasons to use this wood for instruments. 1. Because it is cheaper, and/or 2. Because it is more durable, i.e., less susceptible to environmental effects. Both of those...

    Re: Improv From Scratch

    I know this is a dumb question, but I’m going to ask anyway: how come something that sounds like so much fun, and LOOKS so easy when people do it well IS SO DIFFICULT TO LEARN? I play a LOT, but...

    Re: Online percussive dance tutorials?

    I agree about that “Squirrel Hunters” video. That thing ROCKS! Is it even possible to get that kind of a groove with a mandolin? That mandolin player didn’t take a break.

    I have two mandolins, a Collings MTO and an MT. “The one-holer” and “the two-holer.”

    Re: Action vs clarity

    “....losing energy to the frets.” I’ve read that before here. Would someone explain the physics of this effect? It makes no sense to me.

    First few bars at slower tempo?

    I watch (and listen) to a lot of YT videos to help learn IT tunes. I’ve noticed (but have never read about) some people playing a tune more slowly for the first bar or two before bringing it up to a...

    Re: Brid Harper Jig Fingering

    Ok, while I’m at it, does anyone have any advice on learning those quick ornaments? I know, I know, this has been discussed here before...but what hasn’t? Besides, nothing I’ve read has helped much.

    Re: Brid Harper Jig Fingering

    Thanks for the info, Jack. I guess a French/Irish group is no more unlikely than an American/Irish one.

    The Miller of Drohan—Tergal14

    Tergal14 has tons of great videos on YT. I’d love to be able to play one tune as well as he plays them all.

    My latest attempt is The Miller of Drohan. No tab is provided and learning by ear takes...

    Does anyone know who Tergal14 is? I love his playing and the lessons. I don’t do FaceBook. Maybe it’s right there. Anyone?

    Re: Jolene Tab

    Just being a wise guy there. I can see why you’d ask that question....great finger-picking guitar on that song. Great song, actually. Seems like a tall order to get that from one mandolin.
