    Hi Teddy, and welcome to the Cafe! Enjoy your time here ;)

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    I came across two versions: Either, clawhammer and frailing are exchangeable - or, as mentioned above, one (I believe clawhammer) uses drop-thumb and less brush strokes than the other. In the end,...

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    I'm afraid that I play more banjo than mandolin nowadays, despite having started with the mandolin and considering myself a mandolin player... But due to my quite active jazz band my plectrum banjo...

  9. Re: Help making German Mandolin decision Knorr or Dean

    Judging from the Video on the Dean's site the two instruments should not sound very different from each other, I guess. And as far as I know you can't go wrong with a Knorr if you like that "German"...

    Re: Leave leather strap on?

    I also leave it on... Lined up on the side, and rolled up in the cavity for the scroll (A style in an F style case).

    Re: Strap locks.

    I recently put straplocks on my solidbody baritone, and I'm thrilled. I primarily did this to keep the strap from coming of the pins, but the best thing about it: It's breeze to put the strap on and...

    Temptation Rag can be found in the "Melody Lines" Book for the "Grilles de Jazz", a french anthology of jazz standards. However, it's in standard notation.
