    Re: Tab Software

    I use MuseScore. They added tab-writing capability a few years ago. I didn't much like MuseScore at first, but either it's improved or I've gotten used to it. :whistling: Although I wasn't impressed...

    To play an electric guitar as a mandolin. Electric guitars are welcome in more places than mandolins might be, and you can sneak it in without people knowing they've been mandolined!

    Re: New Strap!

    I pulled out a bunch of paracord this morning to try this out. I've got an old Gibson A1 with a heel button that currently has an exceptionally ugly and uncomfortable strap on it.

    One of the neat things about a 304 is that while you treat it with care and respect, you can do little custom touches like a strap button install on the heel yourself without killing the value. You...

    Re: First Mando - Eastman 304

    That's a nice looking instrument. I just ordered a new Eastman, the 305, and hope it will serve me well. They seem to be one of the best values on the market. I guess we'll see.

    Congrats

    Congrats on your new mandolin. Am a big fan of oval hole mandolins. Those Eastman 304 models are really nice. Enjoy your journey with the new mandolin.

    I can't speak for the mandolin, but I did buy one of the Eastman gig bags from the Mandolin Store when they were on sale a few weeks ago. As gig bags go, I like it a lot!

    Have fun!

    Re: Newbie here, suffering from analysis paralysis

    One of the nicest mandolins I've ever played was a Flatiron 1N. It was just a sweet sounding mandolin, and would serve any beginner well. Like anything there will be flat tops that are uninspiring....
