    Steve Cropper

    Re: Route 66

    Thanks for your replies. I am a fairly competent player. I was thinking more in terms of chordal work behind his riffs.

    Route 66

    Suggestions please. A friend has sent me a recording of him playing Route 66. Blues version not the jazz version.
    He is kind of playing a riff and chords. He wants me to put a mandolin on it. Any...

    Re: Balance when mixing

    Thanks everyone for this invaluable advice. I understand the idea of equalisation but what do mean by cutting frequencies? If you have the time to make a quick summary for bass, guitar and mandolin.

    Balance when mixing

    I like recording with mandolin, acoustic guitar, bass guitar (acoustic but plugged in) and vocals. Obviously overdubbing.
    Nothing fancy, I just use Audacity
    My question is how do the various...

    Re: Nice Little Wing Cover on Mandolin

    Thanks for the information, Drew. He also tunes his guitar down a semi-tone on some of his recordings. Is that a standard practice in some circles?

    Re: Nice Little Wing Cover on Mandolin

    It's really excellent. I can't seem to find any other mandolin tunes by him though.
    Funny he appears to be playing in G but he is tuned/recorded a semitone down. I also found a clip of him playing...

    Re: Mandolin (guitar) and bass duo

    Thanks Keb. I have just listened to the samples on I-tunes and it's true the music is superb. The mandolin and bass are a perfect fit. I'm not mad about the voice though.
