    Re: An extra finger can be incredibly handy

    The same as always. Tabs don't show fingers, they show frets.
  2. Re: Another Question for the Theory Geeks (no mandolin content)

    It could be slow 12/8 (or 6/8) with triplet sixteenth notes.

    Re: Hinged tailpiece

    I have the same type on my bowlback. The slightly curved top allows you to put your wrist/forearm in the curve to help hold the mandolin.

    Re: Help me use this diminished lick

    C#dim7 is not diatonic in D minor, since there is no C# in the key signature. But, C# is usually found in D minor as the raised leading tone. It is what makes harmonic minor.

    Re: Nomd!

    I played an Eastman mandola at Mass Street Music last Saturday. Might be the same one. You'll be pleased.

    Re: Tremolo Notation

    If you have "one slash on an eighth-note stem", you must already have one bar or flag to indicate the eighth-note. It is the total that matters.

    Re: Tremolo Notation

    While some composers may not follow the standard, there are definite rules for slashes: one slash means eighth-notes, two slashes mean sixteenth-notes, three slashes mean 32nds or a tremolo.

    Re: Tremolo Notation

    "Press" and "buzz" mean the same thing, a multiple-bounce roll. Drum corps and marching bands would have called it a "closed" roll as opposed to an "open" (double bounce) roll.

    Re: Tremolo Notation

    Although the originally meaning was 32nd notes, three slashes in drum music means a roll. A "press" roll is multiple bounces on each stroke so that is sounds like a continuous buzz, but I've never...

    Re: Triplets Pick Direction

    You can always just use alternate picking. I use it all the time for triplets and jigs.

    Re: Converting guitar chords

    The Dm is shaped for guitar, not mandolin.
  15. Re: PSA - those old-school wooden pyramid metronomes

    I had it in college and can guarantee it was dropped more than once, along with several other things.

    The CBS "Sunday Morning" news show recently had a good article about this exhibit.
  17. Re: PSA - those old-school wooden pyramid metronomes

    Nice clip, but what does it have to do with this thread? Did I miss the metronome reference?
  18. Re: PSA - those old-school wooden pyramid metronomes

    I have an old pendulum metronome which is very uneven and has to be held at an extreme angle to work correctly. On the other hand, if you place it on a level surface it clicks in 6/8 time.
  19. Re: What's the most fun way to learn the fretboard

    You don't have to make the computer play the tune, you can just read the ABC. Each note is usually an eighth-note, not a quarter-note, but that is variable and is set for each tune.

    Re: Setting vs. Arrangement

    "Setting" and "version" are being used with the same meaning, as far as TheSession goes. "Arrangement" is how you have arranged a particular version, as to the instrumentation, repeats, etc.
