    Re: Taran Springwell

    Hi Kevin. Hope all well with you in this time of isolation. I am listening to your Taran through my headphones and yes, it has a great sound across the whole range. Might I add that your playing...

    Re: Key of Bb

    Tom, are you perhaps talking about inversions of the chord? When you play a chord as a triad (3-note chord) then if you begin with the root, then add in 3rd and 5th, you are playing the root...
  6. Re: The merciless camera (recording ourselves as a reality check)

    Have you noticed how many of us who post over on the SAW group and elsewhere leave our heads/faces out of the camera shot? The excuse it that it focuses the viewer on the hands, but the truth of it...
  7. Re: A Mandolin & Octave Mandolin duet: Big Hands

    A great tune and very fine recording and playing, Isaac. Thanks too for sharing the notation and the details of your recording set-up. I am still using Windows XP on an Advent laptop (with no...

    Re: Help with musical notation and tabs

    Thanks, Mark. I just wondered why there would be a fret position marked on the same string as the muting symbol. That same symbol appears on chord diagrams when a string has to be omitted (or...

    Re: Help with musical notation and tabs

    I am not a lover or user of TAB, but could it be that the person who created the TAB has meant to have the "x" on the top E string, therefore muting it, but allowing you to play the G at 2nd fret (A...

    Re: Turns and Mordents

    As Doug says, I imagine you are reading a violin/fiddle score, Sherry. I play a lot with fiddlers, mainly Scottish/traditional music and I use hammer-on and pull-off techniques in my interpretation...

    Re: Leaving Stoer by Ivan Drever

    That is a really good video, Mandrian. Very informal and creates a great tmosphere. One of the more unusual venues, I would guess, and should certainly produce a very clean recording environment!...

    Sherry, which do you feel more at home with? By all means try the different stroke directions and combinations that are recommended, but I would say that ultimately your own natural picking style...
