    Re: Did Bill Collings Sign All Or Some?

    Me too. The Collings labels are pretty "busy", so the signature is sometimes hard to find. But I think he signed them all up until ...

    Re: Please allow me to introduce myself...

    One of the links posted above was to thesession.com, which is incorrect. The correct link is thesession.org. A great site for Celtic tunes, old and new. If you don't do music notation or ABC...

    Re: Who?

    I don't sing. I just don't. But I remember my mother trying to coax me: "If that Bob Dylan is making a living, you could be a millionaire."

    Re: Tied notes in TablEdit - How?

    No, actually, I am transcribing from a rather simple piano arrangement. I am interpreting the arcs in question to indicate phrasing and if so they really change the character of the introduction to...

    Thanks for all the suggestions. "Legato" seems to do the trick. Here is what I have been able to do using the Legato function:

    Tied notes in TablEdit - How?

    Here is a screenshot of a bit of the intro to a Stephen Foster tune:

    Re: Happy January 8th!

    I guess I never saw a bear playing a guitar left-handed before.

    Thanks for the tune!
  8. Re: Flop Eared Mule -- by Stephen Foster (?!?!?!)

    Sometimes I wonder -- do you think Roy Clark had as much fun playing showoff tunes as he appeared to be having? He really was jam full of talent on just about anything with "strangs".

    And the Holy...

    Re: Upgrading a tailpiece

    Actually, the tailpiece is probably less problematic than some other aspects of your mandolin, if it is anything like the LM270 (or was it 290?, I don't remember) I had. Number one, if you haven't...

    Happy Birthday you old geezer!:)

    I know Cyril Stinnet played fiddle "over the bar". Never saw anybody do it with a mandolin. Neat.

    Re: Mandolin Set-up E-Book by Rob Meldrum

    Usually he is pretty prompt to reply if he sees the keywords in the subject line of the email. See instructions below. I think he gets a lot of junk in his inbox and without the keywords he may miss...
  12. Re: Help with time signature: Lankum - Old man from over the sea

    The rhythm pattern is quite interesting, for sure. I can't feel it as a 6/8 unless I ignore my experience with jigs and (some) marches - those are basically two triplets per measure, I am feeling...
  13. Re: Flop Eared Mule -- by Stephen Foster (?!?!?!)

    There IS a mule in there! (and by golly I'm gonna find it)

    I do enjoy good fiddling and unexpected quotes from one classic in another.
  14. Re: Help with time signature: Lankum - Old man from over the sea

    I get the following repeating pattern: 123-5-, which could make it 6/4 or 3/2 . Neither is a time signature I know anything about except that Irish traditional music does have a few "three-two's"...
  15. Flop Eared Mule -- by Stephen Foster (?!?!?!)

    OMG - My radio alarm is tuned to KQAC-FM, our local classical music station, and I awoke this morning to Flop Eared Mule! Really! The announcer came on afterwards and identified it as "Holiday...

    Re: Playing Mandola - Tips & Tricks

    I played a tune recently on the mandola that ranged all the way down to a B note, half a step lower than the low string on a mandola. Just for fun, I double tracked it on a video. One track played...

    Re: Playing Mandola - Tips & Tricks

    I often transpose down an octave if the tune will allow it (and if I can play it that way). The sixth fret is a lot farther away from the nut on a mandola, so it does require some pinkie stretch and...

    Yup. It really looks good but the video sound sample (and construction sequence) is what convinced Santa to make the leap.

    I am quite partial toward Weber mandolins. Was travelling through Montana last summer and stopped to see Bruce and Mary. Here they are with an old Beartooth A model that Bruce was tweaking. What a...

    I have an old harmony 215t that I mess around with. I have had it tuned CGDA like a mandola but the 24" scale has been difficult for me. A couple weeks ago I tried ADGB - middle four from a regular...
