    Re: Picking faster?

    I've made a long progression from brushing the pinky finger to a relaxed closed fist and it's made a huge difference. But don't rest the heel of the hand behind the bridge! What you don't want is a...

    Check out "Cracking the Code" (https://troygrady.com/) for some really good right hand tips. It's mostly guitar stuff, but he does have a mando video. What I learned from this site is that just...
  3. Re: Straight Up Strings by Siminoff - any thoughts or experiences

    I've tried the Straight Ups and really liked them. I'm in no position to judge about the physics, but I liked the slightly lighter gauge G strings. I got a custom set from Mapes strings in same...

    Re: Tonedexter

    That's it! No matter how good the piezo, it still sounds piezo to me. Tonedexter solves that problem. (And no matter what the future holds, the current iteration is pretty impressive.)

    Re: Tonedexter

    I just got one a few weeks ago. In a word: astounding!

    I've tried pretty much everything else (except the red eye)--I've got an Anthem in my guitar which sounds pretty good and I used to have a...

    If your band ever makes it down to Birmingham I'll definitely come out and see you!

    Great lesson, great playing, and great sounding mandolin! (I'm biased, though, since according to Steve Sorensen I own the sister instrument to yours.)

    Shameless plagiarism and a KM-150

    Being relatively new to the mandolin in general and jazz mandolin in particular, I have been shamelessly copying solos note for note. In this version of All of Me, I've plagiarized Don Stiernberg's...

    I've got to second this. I realize the OP is not in the market for a new instrument, but in my experience, this is the real difference between budget mandos and the higher quality stuff. On a really...

    Does anyone have any experience with Gibson oval hole mandos from the 1930s? How do they rate quality and tonewise to ones from the Loar era?

    That's what I use with my clip on mic. Works great. Has phantom power, mute, and boost.

    Re: Kentucky KM-150

    Although I've moved on now, I can't say enough about the KM150 as a starter mandolin. It is a great instrument, entirely gig worthy and a pleasure to play. Can't recommend it strongly enough!

    Re: Tips on chords in Jazz

    No expert here, but I tend to stay away from the fancy extensions. I leave them to the guitar player and just use three-note inversions--except maybe on the five chord to add a little tension.
