    Re: One more which tuning is best?

    Yes, mando forum I guess. Plus, 5ths are pretty intuitive and are used by different instruments.

    Re: One more which tuning is best?

    For me, its GDAE too-- but more based on my limitations. I'm a guitar player who can get around on a mando. I'm not real good on theory or transposing, so going to CGDA just messes with my mind. I...

    Just to report in... I'm loving this thing. I tuned it like an octave mando. I'm not a really good player (really a guitar player, and mediocre at that), but this seems to match my inadequacies...

    I guess that guy who was selling his used tenor tele on Reverb for $800 is out of luck.

  10. Re: My adventures in tenor guitar, transposing finally works

    Awesome post. I'm tuned octave mando on my tenor because I can't transpose in my head.... Octave mando is nice but sits pretty close to guitar. Would love to over come and move to C like you did....

    Re: Down the Tenor Rabbit Hole... (Help)

    Picked it up last week.... price was way low. You right about playing/sounding great. The bare wood... yes, but you don't see it when you are playing it!

    Hello!

    I have an old Regal tenor guitar (koa b/s) that is about the size of a Martin Size 5 guitar. I'd like to convert it to octave mando. What string gauges should I use?

    Thanks!

    These look great!

    Do they have enough volume to be heard with other instruments? I know its not as loud as an archtop, but is it close?
