    Re: Mandola and standard notation reading

    I play the "middle C" where ever I want. Sometimes on the open string, some times on the 5th fret of the G string. Depends on if there are notes below the C or on the sound I want. Some times I...

    Here ya go.......




    Looks like a Gibson TG-50 with a "monkey on a stick" pick up. Nice!

    Well, this ain't bluegrass and it ain't blues, but it's a really cool cover of One Kind Favor, a Blind Lemon Jefferson song originally (it made the Folk boom rounds a few decades ago too).
