  1. Re: Micing mandolins for recording purposes...

    I’ve used AT PRO35 for a clip on condenser. Also used the old standard SM 57 on a stand. Both work very well in different circumstances. But recently I had K & K pickups installed, and loving them...

    I don’t mean to strictly categorize it though. I remember one of the tunes he sings in Gb is by Chris Knight, from Kentucky. This song: https://youtu.be/0U2Px5OR0eA

    I have a few favorites lately in different styles on mandolin, Green River (CCR), Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning (Rev Gary Davis) and Diving Duck Blues (Yank Rachell). All are a lot of fun on...

    Some good practice

    I recently hit upon a fun practice regimen, entirely by chance. It involves nothing more than playing with my son.

    He's long been in this phase where he wants to keep his guitar tuned down a half...
  6. Re: So... They seem to think I'm starving and homeless?

    Happened to me last night, and I remembered this thread from last year :)

    I think it has much to do with the Christmas season ... notice this thread was started in December last year.

    Ah, yes, I agree. Chart wasn’t useful for me personally. YMMV. But Don’s advice was helpful, as usual. Much appreciated.

    Re: Improvising

    I haven't gotten that impression from anyone's remarks here; "compete with composing"? It is plain and simply composition, on the fly and in the moment. Immediate composition.

    Re: How to play harmony

    Would be good to think about your terminology, perhaps.

    "Chord notes" i.e. "chord tones" of Gmaj chord = G, B, D ... so the next chord note in the key of G on melody note G would be a B note (B is...
