    Re: Reading music

    A quick search led me to this article. Wow. In all my childhood band years playing clarinet, I never knew that when I played a C everyone was hearing a Bb. So do I understand correctly? If I had...

    Re: Reading music

    So, Louise, are you saying that if the clarinet and the mandolin are playing the same tune together, their parts are written in different keys!? This is hard to wrap my head around. Boy, do I have...

    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    This analogy makes me blush, having acquired so many instruments in less than a year :redface::mandosmiley:
  4. Re: Free stuff for Celtic mandolin Learners

    John, thanks for posting this. My maternal Grandmother came from the Shetlands via Edinburgh in 1917. She died when I was quite young. My oldest cousin recalls asking her to speak in the Gaelic, and...
  5. Re: Shout-out for Duke Sharp's Garageband Theory book

    Hey Sheila, I also emailed Duke and he gave me a great deal on a hard/soft copy combo. (Sometimes I don't like to be looking at computers, but printing stuff out for the music stand seems to be a...
  6. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    Well, you guys might or might not be interested in what I decided, at least for now. Well, I know Zach is, anyway :))

    I decided not to put the sticker on the case for now. Not because I care about...

    Re: New Build: 13 inch scale Flat-Top

    Looks nice, Bob. I really like the elongated shape, the light top and the darker sides and back. And of course, I love the names >^..^<
  8. Re: So what would a 27" scale mandocello sound like?

    The low tones are pretty visceral. I had a conversation with Jake Wildwood last week when I went to pick up my new mandola, about how instruments affect our senses, of course auditory, but also...
  9. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    So I fully agree with Jeff and Murphy and others about enjoying your own stuff the way you want it, yet I still hesitate to do something that might intrinsically cause damage to something old. Is...

    I'm in the process of setting up a new windows 10 laptop (dragged kicking and screaming from win7), and have used FireFox for years. Mark, there are about a zillion extensions called "Video...

    Re: Pike County Breakdown

    Very cool!
  12. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    I do already have one case that might just be cooler than that, given it's custom padding and humble chipboard origins. And I'm not even showing the crease in the back ;)

  13. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    I appreciate all the comments. I get that it's largely personal opinion. Haven't fully decided yet,but here's (for me) the most cogent statements pro and con so far:

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    What can I say? It followed me home ;)

    They all look fun; so many instruments so little time. I've messed around with it a few times already, and it's a blast and sounds different and excellent....

    Re: Lyon & Healy Model A case information

    That's a really nice looking case. What did you have to do to "rejuvenate" it?
  18. Re: Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Cas

    That is the main question. I already have collected a few stickers on the Bada$$(TM) Chipboard Case that holds my Kentucky. And I don't plan on ever selling the Stradolin. Nonetheless, I'm somewhat...

    Okay let me rephrase. Would you do it, and if not why?
  20. Re: A banjo album that deserves wider recognition

    I'm listening to and enjoying the album right now while I work on catnip mandolins.

    The car is the other option.
  22. Should I put a Mandolin Cafe Sticker on my Vintage Lifton Case?

    The case came with my early 40's Stradolin and is probably the original case. The Stradolin's my favorite mandolin. I have an extra Mandolin Cafe sticker, my favorite place on the internet.

    This also is very good advice, but when you are a newbie (like me) it can be hard because you really don't know what you are doing yet. Someone in another thread mentioned bringing someone with you...

    Re: Mandolin purchase advice for a new player

    It's definitely good advice to buy from someone who will ensure that your instrument is well set up. But I also feel that, if you have access to someone who can do that work, and you find a great...
