    Re: Looking for instruction

    Jill, Ye Vagabonds sound great! Those mandolins really sing. I'll check them out, thanks for the idea.

    Re: Video: The Princess

    Grey Owl is such a great tune! But all your videos are great. Everyone should have a family band like that (I can't convince my wife to play anything, and my son is too young).

    I second the...

    Re: Taran Springwell

    It's a great sound from the mandolin, absolutely. You're lucky to have each other - a great instrument for you, a great player for it!

    Re: Mandolin Sleigh Ride

    I have loathed this song for many years since working in a shop as a student Christmas job, where a tacky over-paced version of it was playing on loudspeakers several times every day. This was the...

    Yes, I have seen this one before ... but it's just as good the second time round.

    Re: Specific Pick Direction Question

    This is how I learnt it, too. If your piece is in 4/4 time and full of 16ths, the DUDU picking pattern is needed to play those. Notes of longer durations, consequently, turn into downstrokes as long...
  11. Re: A tune I wrote for octave mandolin - Something Squirrelly

    You're doing things there that I didn't even think possible. It's a beautiful tune and a perfect and impressive rendition.

    Re: Fingering Technique

    Wouldn't it depend on the melody? If a slide from one note to the next one up would sound good, that's the finger that will cover two notes. If there's a "breathing gap" between two notes, that's...

    Re: Two German songs in honour of meadows

    The first couple of bars are similar to Alouette. I'm German, and the closest match to my mind hasn't been mentioned yet: This German children's song about a lanky boy and a plump girl picking fruit....

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    I wouldn't say I've settled on the Hawk picks. They're one of my current favourites, along with many of the others in that video - Gravity, Blue Chip, Dunlop, and several varieties of each!

    Re: Why do you like the picks you like?

    I'm on the same quest, and the video below is part of it. I've linked it in a couple of other pick threads recently, but it fits in here too.



    The information out there is so confusing that...

    I second the comment about the big sound! I was experimenting with drones just yesterday (John knows about this). You show how it's done properly. Great playing!

    My workaround was to record a "jiggy click track" of me playing along with a jig on headphones (a jig by Marla Fibish, coincidentally), with muted strings. Then you can play the melody in the same...
