    Re: Temperance..... Jig!?!?

    Great playing, Gunnar. There are a lot of jigs and reels that can be adapted as you have done, and a change of tempo gives a freshness to a well-known tune. Your picking and right-hand fingering is...

    Re: Cords on the ground

    Is it a good idea to hide power and other leads, Kevin? We tend to have them where we can see them. I have seen them taped down, or fitted into moulded rubber shields and even, as you mention,...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    What a great piece of playing on that jig, Jill.

    Re: Tascam DR-05 vs Zoom H2N

    Charlie, for what it is worth, here is my input. I use the Tascam DR-05 and am very happy with it. I have no experience of the Zoom recorder but have heard good reports of it as well.

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Great advice there, Jill, especially regarding the speed of the triplets. In Scottish music it is tempting to speed the triplets in Strathspeys and in the pipe marches, especially in the 6/8 marches...

    Another UK welcome here - from Scotland, Alan. I have been on here for several years and still find it a great and positive site. Have a look over at the Song-A-Week group for a really friendly and...

    Re: Why the connection?

    Maybe the link is the fact that the tenor banjo can be tuned GDAE like the mandolin (though an octave lower)? Or maybe just that it is an instrumnet with strings but does not look like a guitar, so...

    Re: OM Setup

    With an instrument straight from the box, it can generally have adjustments done at the nut to get a lower string height at the first fret. Fresh from the factory they tend to leave the nut a bit...

    Re: Notation Software?

    I have been using Musescore now for most of my musicnotation. It is very like Sibelius, but is open source and free to use, though donations are welcome to the makers. It allows me to do anything I...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Yet another little gem, Jill. Those triplet ornaments are so beautifully played. I agree with you about 4-parters - we have that with so many of our Scottish pipe marches where it is so easy to mix...
