    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...

    Re: Youtube and Ookpik Waltz ownership

    Right. As I already said in post 3 above. Am I on your "ignore" list? ;) :)

    Re: Youtube and Ookpik Waltz ownership

    I'd say there's a possibility it's copyright trolls trying to make money off of *your* videos. :( Here's an older MandolinCafe thread about others' experiences with this sort of thing.

    Re: Combination sound hole and a special carve?

    Cool! :mandosmiley: :)



    I'm one of the (probably) minority who is *so* weary of the same-ol' same-ol' traditionally-accepted designs, grew up with that, way too many decades of unwitting...
  8. Re: I know that tune... um... how's it go again?

    I'm assuming your songbook only has lyrics and chords, but no notes?

    What I find helpful is to write down just the first few notes of each song or tune. If I forget how a tune goes, a super-quick...

    Thanks David and Randi! :)

    Also it seems that there's yet another (maybe more formal??) :confused: name for lead-in notes or pick-up notes: anacrusis. Although I've never heard any of my ragtag...
  11. Re: Help! I can't hear the beat when I play a break

    I grew up hearing them referred to as "lead-in" notes, but in more recent years have also heard them called "pick-up" notes. Never heard anyone say "pick-up" notes until modern times, the first time...
