    Re: Lace Pickup

    Like mandroid stated above, it'll work with J74's. As long as you're running it into an amp you won't need a preamp. If you're running direct into the board you'll need a DI box to match impedance. ...

    Sonatas for mandolin

    I've been working on a series of Sonatas for mandolin in the style of the 18th century Italian composers like Barbella, Gervasio and Battista. It's a style I really like and I hope to do a lot more...

  9. Re: Post your favorite clips from U-Tube, let's start a collectio

    Just saw this posted on facebook. Quiet, sparse, lovely. A little flourish on mandolin. Not sure by whom, as there are three mandolinists listed in the credits. One of them is Sam Bush, but I don't...

    I've watched this video multiple times and it moves me every time. It's a great tune, and Tim O's rendition is soul stirring to say the least (the man is a certifiable national treasure in my book). ...

    Marty Stuart on Letterman...with Mando!

    Seeing Marty on the mandolin has become something of a rarity, which makes this even more of a treat.

    Re: Orange Blossom Special on the Mandolin

    I hate to be the contrarian but this is just about the worst tune in bluegrass. It's a show off tune for fiddle players for audiences that don't know what good fiddling really sounds like. I'd rather...

    I think your practicing of scales is excellent, for the ear training, ear finger key association training, knowing what each note does in a scale and knowing how a note can have an ambiguous...
  16. Re: what was/is your biggest problem as a beginner?

  17. Re: VIDEO: David Bromberg & Mark Cosgrove - Summer Wages

    What's wrong with that? Sounds like classic Bromberg to me. He's always had a "unique" vocal style. I'ts real mucis by real people. Two voices, two instruments. There's no place to hide.

    Re: Playing in the key of F

    Guessing is poor advice and it makes very little sense to retune and learn new fingerings for one particular key.
    Also there's no particular advantage to having the root and fifth open.
