    Re: Higher Education for Mandolin

    Howdy,

    I'm aware of several folks who've done something similar in regards to tailoring their degree towards mandolin. I believe that David Benedict of Mandolin Monday's and Mile Twelve fame did...

    Re: Vulfpeck - Thile appearance

    Ya know, you might be right. One's cool and the other is like a drunk hippy. I mean, what do I know? They both seem to be overcome with joy and move to the music in the form of dance. I dunno,...

    Steve James has a couple of video instructionals on blues mandolin styles over at Homespun.
  4. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    Do you mean pushing the musical and technical boundaries of the instrument itself? Your examples of Les Paul, Barry, Hendrix, Van Halen, and SRV, did help popularize those styles of playing but they...

    Re: The Bluegrass Store - Columbus OH

    Ah, it was The String Shoppe that I was thinking of. I seem to remember Sonny's closing down not long after Gold Circle went out of business. I can't imagine that that mall is still standing as I...

    Re: Northfield Airloom Recurve review

    I took advantage of the recent sale at Northfield and picked up the Slate Grey with new latches and two straps for my new Buckeye mandolin. This is a really cool case which looks more black in...

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    I've liked just about every carbon fiber guitar I've ever played so count me in.



    A few months back I played one of those over at Acoustic Vibes Music in Arizona and it was surprisingly good.

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    A few photos of my new mandolin. Regardless of what you think of my choice in mandolins, you'll, no doubt, be impressed by my exquisite taste in straps.

    Re: Grieving Sally Goodin

    "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep...
  13. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    Y'all,

    I'm getting over the flu this week and haven't had much time to practice this one. But, just thinking out loud (over lunch), since diminished chords repeat themselves every three frets...
  14. Re: Best all inclusive books on Jazz // Progressive Blues.

    Howdy,

    If you're tuned in "Chicago Tuning" then you should be in fourths like the first four strings on a guitar. Roy Smeck's Mel Bay Ukulele Method is great for getting those jazz chords under...
  15. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    You're absolutely right, kinda, sorta, not really. You're right in that she is creating AN arpeggio by starting on each note of the major scale. She creates these arpeggios by counting up 1, 3 and...
  16. Re: Reversed mando tuning/strings for guitar player?

    Well, I've been playing guitar for over 40 years but tuning in 5ths just seems to be the more intelligent way to tune an instrument. Heck, Robert Fripp likes it so much that he tunes his guitar in...

    Re: Anyone from SWFL?

    Hi Joe,

    I used to live in Port Charlotte and there used to be an amazing open jam every Thursday night in Gilchrist Park on the banks of the beautiful Peace River in Punta Gorda. These used to...

    I tabbed it out for you in post #18. Just click onto the picture.
  19. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    So true. It's wild that the theory for how chords are made for various keys had been lost to me all these years until I came across the video and started to think about it a bit. It was when you...
  20. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    For the second part of the exercise bigskygirl nailed it. Sierra doesn't name the chords but by playing the notes in the exercise she is playing the chords that bigskygirl named for each set. Like...
  21. Re: A few neat exercises from Sierra Hull and Reverb

    That makes sense harmonically but I didn't think that that's what she's doing. I thought what she's doing is more like what "atsunrise" is describing. This makes me laugh a bit as I've recently...

    Re: chop chord synchronization/alternation

    I've been playing music for decades and only recently have decided to explore Bluegrass and give it a proper shake. Something so simple as the chop chord has turned out to be trickier than I ever...
