    Re: everyday microphones in high places

    FWIW a Shure representative told me that the only difference between an SM57 and SM58 is the cover on the end of the microphone. The SM58 has a small foam filter inside the ball which is supposed to...
  2. Re: Notes at 7th Fret = Major Chords with Sharpened 3rds

    Well, all the sharp keys have a sharp third except G. If you extend the series D A E B to F#, it also has a sharp third. I don't see anything significant to it.

    Re: Celtic music

    Yes. Every session, or jam as they are otherwise known in the states, has it's own personality. The first time at any session or jam is like a first date. Be on your best behavior and take what you...

    Re: first year for Gibson correct truss rod

    This is the first I have heard of "bent-backwards truss rods." Can somebody elaborate, please?

    "Diddley"
    Now, there is a brand new term to me. Not a new word, mind you, but an entirely different use. Just be aware, Jock, if you come to our session and say you want to play Diddley, you won't...

    Oh.

    From your subject line I thought you were going to be asking for a fingering for some really bizarre E minor chord. ;-)

    Re: Ukuleles in Hawaii

    Don't think you are going to find a killer deal - or even a great deal - because you are buying an ukulele in Hawaii. Nothing is cheap in Hawaii. If you want a "decent ukulele to pull out for a 1...

    Re: Pricing for session tune class

    I've been considering the same type of thing. I believe what it really comes down to is how much the participants are willing, or perhaps more important, capable of paying. If you only consider your...

    Re: Free ain't good enough

    It sounds like the owner is a "rock head" and probably, truly does not understand the difference in musical styles. To him, music is rock. Period.

    I sang in a barbershop quartet some 30 years ago....

    Re: Still considered an Irish Bouzouki?

    Omigosh! Are you kidding? The banjo (banjar) was an African instrument which morphed from the gourd-drum configuration to the rim style in the United States and went back across the Atlantic to be...

    Re: Learning to play by ear

    First of all, I agree with you that V sounds best there. It's what I play also.

    But, you must - must - get past the notion that there is only one way to play something and that your way is right....

  14. Re: Does impedance, to a degree, really matter ?

    Just got to correct you on one thing, pops. The ohm is the unit of measurement for both DC resistance and AC impedance. A mho is the unit of transconductance, which is simply the inverse of...

    Re: CM7add6 Fingering

    You've got plenty of answers, so I am going to drift a little.

    My first inclination was what you were actually looking for was a Cmaj13 as Ted suggested. My mando is in the case but I always have...

    Re: How many 'Celtic' players aren't?

    I am an American. No, not native American as the term is currently used, but my lineage has been traced back to early american colonists. That and a penny will get me a ride on the supermarket pony. ...
  17. Re: Does impedance, to a degree, really matter ?

    From an electrical engineer:

    If you plug a high impedance source (like a humbucker or unamplified piezo device) into a low impedance input (like a line level jack) you have essentially short...
  18. Re: Obsessive, constant visual retuning, while ignoring one's ear

    I worked at a music store for a year and a half. In that time I sold hundreds of electronic tuners and exactly one tuning fork. Regardless of what you may use, bratsche, Tim is correct.
  19. Re: Don'y Make Me Use My Mandolin Player Voice!

    The model is cute, but frankly I am baffled by the whole thing - the 50s Mom, the "mandolin player voice" idea. Should this be in the classified area? You haven't disavowed a financial interest.

    Re: mando tasting at Elderly

    My wife was getting a demo on steel guitars at Elderly while I sat nearby. There was an F style mando hanging in front of me so I took it down...
  21. Re: Playing by notation not tab....what are the advantages?

    Re: What does this mean?

    Is the tab accompanied by standard notation? That would answer the question.

    Re: 3 string chords?

    You can also not strum the unincluded string as long as it is an outside string. This obviously takes considerably more practice.

    Re: Anthem at Super Bowl

    Nobody, not even the pros, sing exactly on pitch. That is not the point at all. If the melody was a single tone, not everybody could sing it on pitch. You don't care how badly they sing it. OK, I...
