  2. Re: Electronic tuner: guide, or unquestionable authority?

    Quite an interesting comparison video for the tuners. One thing I was curious about though, is it typical for guitar players to tune down to a note?

    Re: Free Waterloo Mandolin

    Absolutely! I had been eyeing up the Calhoun just because it's more solidly in my price range but I would love the chance to own a Waterloo flat-top. Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. Re: Strap attachment - A style, no body button

    I've got an MD-305 and have been tying the strap between the nut and the lowest tuners. At first I was worried that the strap-tie might push up on the strings and pop them out of the slots in the nut...

    Re: How Much Better Does It Get

    Just an additional point for consideration:

    When my MD305 first arrived (and for ~3 months after) I was also pretty dismayed about the fretting difficulty. I sort of had it in my head that a...

  16. Do you ever sing the notes of a tune while you play it?

    I've been trying something out in my practice sessions where I try to match my voice to the pitch of the tune I'm playing and 'sing' the notes over top of my picking.
