  2. Re: How to approach practicing and improvement?

    Highest priority for me would be to learn how to play the simple melody of any vocal tunes you like. This builds your intuition. Like being able to “sing” with the mandolin. Also, focus on concepts...

    Re: Revisiting: The Mandolin: A History

    Agreed. For a slightly lighter read - more of an overview - I would also recommend everyone check out Walter Carter’s “Mandolin in America” (UES, Walter Carter from Carter Vintage.) Outstanding...

    Re: What's In Your Mind

    Short answer is to play and play and play.....eventually this all becomes guided by intuitive flow. Maybe you’ll have a split second thought here or there about a certain lick you want to throw in,...

    Re: Prettiest Peghead Inlays Ever

    I’ll have to agree with the Apitius comments (nice work, Oliver!!) Naturally, I’m partial to the Apitius Vine that Oliver did for me. Best mandolin I’ve ever played (and I just spent two days at...

  10. Re: New Apitius Club Jazz Mandolin acquisition…

    One way to know what they sound like - listen to any mandolin recording by Dan Tyminski and any recent work by David Benedict. They’re both die hard supporters. There are also a number of recording...

  16. Re: Why did you choose the mandolin over another instrument?

    For me it was to get girls. Everybody knows that chicks can't resist a mandolin picker. After more than 20 years....well, I'm sure the ladies will be calling me any day now.
