  1. Florida Man Saves Gunnar (no mandolin content)

    No mandolin content but it did make me think of one of our regular posters, Gunnar.
    Notice during the vid, the man in the water stumbles a couple of times? He keeps tripping over.

    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    I’d say put about 7,000 back into your pocket and buy a temporary A style. A Weber?
    Play it like crazy for 6 months, take lessons at Gryphon once a week, get to know the people there and check out...
  3. Re: WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals...

    With the size of my octave mandolin I was looking at twice the harmful exposure.

    Re: How to remember tunes?

    When I think of the times I ‘go wrong’ in a tune, it’s mainly because for a short block of notes my fingers want to go somewhere and my reasoning memory think the tune should physically (finger...

    Re: Sierra Hullís E-Tune

    Thanks a lot Mark. Yay Sierra, what a great tune!

    I’ll have to try and learn it some time, but what I love about this tune is that even just learning a couple of riffs and playing that would...

    Thereís nothing quite like an inspiring Slow Air.
    We have slow airs south of the border too, with words or lyrics.
    This one was beautiful.

    Poll: Re: Poll for Song A Week Social Group Week #535

    Good advice as usual from Mr. Kelly.

    I wonder if this tune could be played as a Slow Air.
    -but my metronome wont go that way. :)

    Something on my ‘To Learn’ wishlist.

    You could also go and check MandolinCafe.com
    They have a Tabledit library (it’s a limited free software that will play abc files) and other TAB in the two libraries under the heading Learn/Listen....

    Re: Harmonized scales

    You can do a search for ‘ear training’ apps on iphone/smartphone.

    The ones I liked gave you a note in the scale of say G for 1 second and I had a second to play it, then it plays, say, the minor...

    Her playing sounds quite classical to me, but I actually donít know a lot of English Country Dance tunes so maybe itís just the way I associate it. The rhythm seems to be around (.95) to (.90)? So...

    I was going to post another metronome vid (‘Oh no, please don’t!’ :)) )

    Re: Hornpipe rhythm

    Seeing the wonderful diversity of rhythms of hornpipes, images and stories, I thought I’d metronome a certain number of examples just to give fixed numerical values to each one.

    Could the top have collapsed asymmetrically -on the fourth string side?
    Would that give the observed issues?

    Not sure what the comment about Bluegrass and Breakdowns means, but personally I find a lot of music theory to be confusing.
    Here are two metronome examples where the rhythms can be seen.

  23. Re: Is there an app for transscribing youtube or mp3 files?

    Yes, I agree with Jim there, transcribing and also ear training are a necessity for playing mandolin. Don’t worry about the time though, it’ll speed up quickly.
    Try to think about intervals while...
  24. Re: Where have all the Irish bouzouki / cittern players gone to?

    That’s interesting because when I play the octave I deliberately try not to play it ‘full’ using a lot of doublestops, but more like a mandolin that has a guitar for accompaniment. I guess I like the...
