    Re: Higher Education for Mandolin

    Y'all,

    I've had iReal Pro for awhile and have mainly used it for practicing Swing Guitar and Gypsy Jazz. I recently did a search on the iPhone App and found that they have new rhythm tracks...

    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,...

  9. 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: The Bluegrass Store - Columbus OH

    Despite playing music since I was a kid, I've only recently taken an interest in Bluegrass. It's been almost 20 years since I've last stepped foot on Planet oHIo and I'm already starting to forget...

    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.

    I actually do Chimes and Carmen Ohio on the Duolian. The chimes can be done using harmonics and then you can just fingerpick the chords while singing the lyrics to Carmen Ohio. But it might be a...

    Re: Gypsy jazz tenor guitar at modest price point

    It's a single cone. I don't think NR-P currently makes a tri-cone tenor. I too have three resos currently: 1931 National Duolian Guitar, a 1997 NR-P Style 1 Tricone Guitar and a Beltona Blue...
