    Re: 3 hours of practice a day?

    Funny how some topics come up. I just ran across this video from Magnus Zetterlund.
  2. Re: Anyone know of a website or app that will display all chord n

    Wow, Jerry that chord web page is amazing!
    I'm working on mandola chords and need to know different shapes up and down the neck. This is a great way to find chords quickly. And yes MrMando, I'm...

    Re: Mandolin Stand Recommendations

    I adjust the width of the 'feet' on the Stagg stand to fit my violin, (the bow goes onto the music stand) and if I remember right, I have put the guitar and certainly the mandola on the Stagg. It is...

    Re: Mandolin Stand Recommendations

    Ingles is good. I have one that my wife took for her violin so I got a Stagg stand which lacks the stuff on top and is a bit more stable.

    Re: Replacing Violin Fingerboard

    Here is another luthier advising not to mess with this fiddle. If the neck joint is firm and does not move under string pressure, leave it in favor of other needs. I understand your interest in...
  6. Has anyone tried flatwound strings on a Pono octave mandolin?

    I'm a big fan of Thomastik flatwound strings. I use them on my mandolins, mandola and even the parlor guitar. So it seems natural that TI strings would be a preference for a Pono M20 short scale...

    Re: About my pick grip

    My pick hold changes according to what I'm doing. Playing light and quiet is similar to Caterina. Playing fast is like Chris T. And doing tremolo I use the rounded side of the pick. Strumming is...

    Re: The new Session King mandolin?

    Tenor Guitar for a name comes to mind. It is probably an octave lower than a tenor guitar, right? So, four string mandolin is accurate.
    I would stay with the guitar shape, it really has some nice...

    Here is the audio file of Arkan Dribnyj, generated with Finale software, using mandolins and bass.

    Simon,I could not figure how to attach a pdf to a private message so this is going out to everyone as a 2 page jpg.

    I've added a mandolin TAB part for the upbeats and a bass in regular bass clef....

    Re: Replacing Violin Fingerboard

    Information comes quick and easy on the internet. This job is far too hard for an inexperienced violin repairman.
    Guitars and mandolins are 'another animal' altogether. Which is what gets people in...
  12. Re: So what would a 27" scale mandocello sound like?

    An amazing sound. It would be ideal for some bass counterpoint with a mandolin. In the right hands however. Large hands. :)

    Re: Software to scan and transpose

    This need to transcribe has been around for a long time and there have been a lot of technical improvements to help in this regard. I've used Finale for almost 20 years and have had a number of crazy...
  14. Re: Ale Brider (a Yiddish folk tune) [on Red Valley Mandolin]

    I've asked a Ukrainian friend to listen to the track. I'll look at the questions here. Thanks
  15. Re: Ale Brider (a Yiddish folk tune) [on Red Valley Mandolin]

    Arkan Dribnyj is the name of the tune. Not sure if there is a yiddish name for it. It is probably a khusidl (pronounced without the k = husidl).
    I do not have the tune sorry Simon. And I agree that...
  16. Re: Ale Brider (a Yiddish folk tune) [on Red Valley Mandolin]

    Eric Stein is the other mandolin player. He's from Toronto, a teacher and also a member of the Ger mandolin orchestra. They play all klezmer music and the band is sort of an 'all star' group with...
  17. Re: Ale Brider (a Yiddish folk tune) [on Red Valley Mandolin]

    In the mandolin klezmer style video they play a khusidl called Sadigura, named from the town (Sadhora) and a Hasidic dynasty in the area in Bukovina which was part of Romania. (Austria and Ukraine,...

    Re: High End mandolin cases... and theft

    I do the same thing with whatever case I happen to have that night.

    And it seems that instruments are stolen when no one is looking.

    Sometimes by people who really do know the value of the...

    Re: Making an Eastman Sing

    I also did not look back after the Blue Chip. My favorite for guitar for many years was the green Dunlop but it is a bit bright on a mandolin. The D'Andrea has a remarkable warm sound and good feel....

    Re: High End mandolin cases... and theft

    Yes, "walking away" is what I'm worried about.

    A small group, no problem, we look out for each other. In a big place, anyone can see a red case and think it is special.

    If it were an ordinary...

    High End mandolin cases... and theft

    I'm wondering how many people worry about their 'high end' instrument case?

    A few years ago I owned a Collings MT. It came with an ordinary looking black case.

    Then I bought a custom MT2...

    Yea, I got the figures wrong. That's why I'm not trusted to spend 1K on a mandolin case.:(
