    Re: Changing strings--winding and leaving?

    I like the method mentioned by Drew above. If you wind the string and then put it thru the hole, only a few turns of the tuner are needed.

    Re: Kentucky octave mandolin

    If you're referring to the Kentucky "Dawg" series of mandolins, mandolas and octaves I think they are all somewhat rare. I don't recall seeing a 'cello along those lines though.

    Thanks Aaron for spending the time and energy on this lesson.

    Anybody out there wanting to learn chord melody, start here.

    Great song choice too!
  13. Re: Six strings are just too much! (but 8 might work...)

    On your 6-string guitar, try using the Freddie Green 3-note chord style. Very effective and easy on the hands.

    Re: Ukelele tuned like a Mandola

    Re: Seagull S8 mandolin. I just got one.

    Possibly a nut slot issue? I had a similar noise that turned out to be a poorly cut nut slot. First, I'd just change the string(s) and see if that auto-corrects it.
